When we're low on energy and inspiration, we often reach for the very things that drain us. Caffeine, screens, sweets... Embracing the routine of our spiritual practices is a way to find the ground we need to feel human again.

Joy in Everyday Life is a 5-week course exploring the meaning of joy and the true source of personal energy and inspiration. The course introduces the experience of awakening our heart and extending loving-kindness to others as a means to continuous personal inspiration. This cheerful, perky joyfulness provides the ground we need to go forward on our journey with a genuine, sustainable enjoyment of the day to day. 

Prerequisites: None. Open to all! This course is a recommended follow-up to Contentment in Everyday Life, but participation in Contentment in Everyday Life is not required.

Program Fee

The Baltimore Shambhala Center relies on program registration fees, as well as on donations, to be able to cover our operating expenses, including the monthly rent. We very much value your paying the registration fee for this program, if you are able to afford this amount.  

Scholarships

We want anyone who wishes to study meditation and to experience the Shambhala view of basic goodness to be able to do so. Scholarships are available so that our programs are open to anyone, regardless of what tuition amount they are able to afford. (See link below if your are in need of a scholarship for this program. Scholarship requests are processed online, so that there is no delay in registration.)

A $35 deposit is requested if you can not pay the full program fee now (unless you are requesting a scholarship). If requesting a scholarship, please go to scholarship page before registering
