Joy in Everyday Life teaches practical methods to develop ongoing kindness toward ourselves and others. By training in compassion, we cultivate a gentle and fearless heart. With discipline, we discover joy. This class explores the Mahayana Buddhist teachings, as well as the Shambhala dignity of Perky and its qualities of cheerfulness, health and freedom from doubt.

Joy in Everyday Life is a class in the Way of Shambhala series, offered once a year at the Austin Shambhala Meditation Center. The Way of Shambhala is a practice and study path that presents the Shambhala Buddhist teachings and explores how we can apply them in everyday life.

Prerequisites: Contentment in Everyday Life (CIEL) is a prerequisite for this program.
