Joy in Everyday Life expands upon our meditation experience by developing kindness toward ourselves and others. 

Through deepening our meditation, we can begin to touch our inherent confidence and open the heart of basic goodness. As we go forward on the journey, joining gentleness with discipline leads to a sense of joy. This is inspiration for a life of bravery and freedom from doubt.

As meditation practice deepens and we develop trust in basic goodness, we can begin to discover the confidence and personal energy to go forward on the journey. Joining gentleness with discipline leads to a sense of joy. The Mah?y?na Buddhist teachings on compassion can become the inspiration for a life of bravery and freedom from doubt.

The program price for this course includes a materials fee of $20. Participants will receive a copy of the book Ruling Your World by Sakyong Mipham Rinpoche, which will be used in this course.

Prerequisites: Meditation in Everyday Life; Contentment in Everyday Life.
Recommended: Shambhala Training Levels I, II, and III.
