Meditation in Everyday Life is a five-week class designed to help new meditators (including those who have never meditated before) develop a regular practice and bring the benefits of mindfulness to their daily lives.  We will put special attention on practical suggestions for establishing a sitting meditation practice in the midst of our speedy society and lives.  By forming a habit of meditation, we can learn to relax and simply be with whatever is going on in our lives.

Each evening class will include meditation instruction, a talk by a teacher and discussion of the challenges that we face in our practice. This series of classes emphasizes the ways in which meditation can impact our daily lives and expand to impact our whole society.  

This is the first course in the Way of Shambhala series.  It is open to the public and does not have any prerequisites.  At the same time, it is a perfect companion course to Shambhala Training Level I

The Philadelphia Shambhala Center generosity policy applies to this program.  We never want finances to be an obstacle to learning how to meditate.  Those who pay the Patron Price make this program available for others.
