    The Everyday Life Series is comprised of five sequential classes:

    The Everyday Life Series can be taken on their own, but also make the perfect study companion for the weekend Shambhala Training meditation retreats (Levels I to V).

    The Way of Shambhala practice and study curriculum welcomes people of all religious traditions as well as those who do not follow a particular spiritual path.

    WIEL: Wisdom in Everyday Life

    Five Tuesday Evening Classes: May 3, 10, 17, 24 and 31 from 7:00-9:00 pm Atlantic / 6:00-8:00 Eastern

    This course explores the dignity of the Dragon - which is inscrutable, because it has attained wisdom, power and awesome conviction.

    Going beyond fear into fearlessness naturally connects us to our innate human goodness, intelligence and bravery that has always been present – all manifestations of innate wisdom. If this wisdom is already ours, why do we experience so much confusion about what to do? How can we tap into that source of wisdom in the midst of our confusion?

    Who Should Attend

    The Everyday Life study courses are meant to be taken sequentially. In order to register for Wisdom in Everyday Life you should have completed Fearlessness in Everyday Life.

    What to Expect

    Each Zoom session includes a guided meditation practice, guided contemplations, conversations and discussions.
