By making a deep connection to the present moment and understanding our mind through the practice of meditation, we learn to make friends with ourselves…

While meditation has many benefits, establishing a consistent personal practice can be very challenging for both new and experienced meditators alike. In that spirit, the Shambhala Meditation Center of St. Johnsbury presents a new four-week course, Meditation in Everyday Life.

This beginning meditation program is designed to help new meditators develop a regular practice and bring the benefits of mindfulness meditation into their daily lives. Through establishing a consistent meditation practice, we learn to accommodate whatever arises in our lives with wakefulness and relaxation.

Over time, meditation helps us to cultivate courage, humor, and stability in the face of the daily complexities that we all experience – in our relationships, jobs, and all aspects of daily life.

Meditation in Everyday Life combines technique and view in a setting of support and community, to offer essential tools for establishing a strong and consistent meditation practice. The course includes meditation posture and breathing; working with obstacles, emotions, and the energy of our minds; then bringing stability and gentleness out into the world.

As a theme throughout the course, we’ll explore the Shambhala view that creating stability and gentleness in our minds can expand outward to our friends, family, neighbors, and to society as a whole.
