About us

Contentment can be hard to find. Much of the time we search for contentment in things, achievements or relationships. With meditation practice, we relax with ourselves and appreciate simple human experiences. Difficult emotions and challenges of life can be met with gentleness, mindfulness and inquisitiveness.

This course provides an exploration of genuine contentment, the foundational views of the Buddhist teachings, and meditation in action for daily life. With meditation practice, we can learn to appreciate ourselves and simple human experiences, free from self-aggression. Difficult emotions and the challenges of life can be met with gentleness, steadiness, and humor.

This is the second course in the “Everyday Life” series of the Way of Shambhala path of training. The course includes guided meditation, talks, and open discussion of the challenges that meditators face in their practice.

Prerequisites: None—everyone is welcome. (Note: Contentment in Everyday Life is recommended preparation for the next course in the series, Joy in Everyday Life.)

Dates and times: Five consecutive Thursdays, April 12 – May 10, 7:00 – 9:00 PM

Suggested readings: See Contentment in Everyday Life Reading List (PDF). The main reference books are available for purchase in the Victoria Shambhala Centre’s bookstore.

Why Retreat?

We asked people why they go on retreat, here's what they said:

To find peace and renewal while going through a huge change in my life. Empty nest and the end of a 27 year marriage all at once. Susan
 

Retreat Guru's Vision

We believe human beings are innately wise, strong and kind. This wisdom, although not always experienced, is always present. Going on retreat is a beautiful way to reconnect to our basic sanity and health. Our aspiration at Retreat Guru is to inspire people to experience authentic retreats and reconnect with their innate wisdom, strength and kindness.
