SF Shambhala Temporarily Moves to Online Format

Dear Sangha, 

Due to the COVID-19 outbreak and the shelter-in-place order in San Francisco, we are in the process of moving our meditation gatherings and classes to an online format.

And, the NorCal Shambhala region has put together a page with a listing of online programs that will continue to be updated regularly. This means more opportunities for group practice. You can view that page here

And, check your emails for updates about ways to connect with community. We wish everyone wellness and a sense of relaxation while we navigate this difficult time.

Contentment in Everyday Life

Contentment in Everyday Life—Now Online

With Kathryn Rile & Susan Arnesen

Five Tuesday Evenings, April 21st—May 19th from 7 to 9 PM (please note date change)

In Contentment in Everyday Life, meditation experience is deepened through the cultivation of contentment and simplicity.
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.
