The Contentment in Everyday Life course is a thorough exploration of mindfulness meditation, delving into the foundational views of the Hinayana Buddhist teachings, and meditation in action for daily life. By acknowledging and understanding the reality of suffering we can open to our inherent goodness and express the qualities of gentleness, appreciation, and fearlessness in our everyday lives.

Classes include meditation sessions, talks and discussion groups.  Students will also be introduced to contemplative exercises that make the journey experiential--touching our emotions, intelligence, creativity, and the practical details of daily life in modern society.

This is a public class open to all, but is especially recommended for people who have taken Shambhala Training Level Two. This is the second class in our core curriculum – Way of ShambhalaAll Are Welcome. The class is five successive Monday evenings. Fee $40 ($35 members) For more information contact Kathy Bither at kbither@bates.edu.
