This five-week class explores how we can open to our heart—the inherent goodness and qualities of contentment: gentleness, appreciation and steadiness—through the practice of meditation. To do this, we must cultivate a strong back to see through the conditions and emotions that keep us tied to our habitual responses to the world. Such contentment is symbolized by the tiger, the first of the four dignities or totemic animals of the Shambhala tradition. This course is open anyone, without or without prior meditation experience, but prior instruction in meditation, Open House attendance at a Shambhala center or participation in a Meditation in Everyday Life course may make some topics more accessible. Classes include meditation, contemplation, group discussion and dialogue.
This class is part of the Way of Shambhala core curriculum.
