Information is for Centre and Group Registration only.
This option is for you if you have a local facilitator(s) and plan to hold weekly or weekend classes at your centre. Facilitators will show the talks and guide participants through discussions, dyads and other activities. The start and end dates are up to the Centre. Individuals will register and pay through your Centre, and you will set them as participants. You must register with Shambhala Online using your Centre or Group's Shambhala account. (Click here for information on creating an account.)
Course Fee: $250 for Centres; $200 for Groups.
NOTE: This fee covers your subscription through December 31, 2017.
A 5-week Interactive Course
Joy In Everyday Life (Lion) follows Contentment in Everyday Life in the Way of Shambhala class series. If you are also taking the Shambhala Training weekends, it expands the meditation experience of Shambhala Training Level III: Warrior in the World.
As meditation practice expands and we develop trust in basic goodness, we can begin to discover the confidence and personal energy to go forward on the journey. Joining gentleness with discipline leads to a sense of joy. The mahayana teachings on compassion can become the inspiration for a life of bravery and freedom from doubt.

Holly enjoys traveling to nomadic areas of Tibet for her research on contemporary Buddhist movements and trekking in the Himalayas and Rocky Mountains with her dogs, Buster and Poky.
How the Course Works
- The course leader or coordinator registers on behalf of the group with your Centre or Group Shambhala account. (Follow these instructions for creating an account.)
- Individuals generally register for the course with your Centre or Group.
- Participants seeking access to course materials should contact the course leader/coordinator.
Most centres use the Way of Shambhala online resources primarily for the recorded talks, and will convene weekly classes that include:
- Registering individual participants;
- Viewing the talk;
- Using dyads to explore individuals' understanding;
- Engaging in discussion about the topics;
- Confirming participants so that their practice record reflects completion of the course.
Your program coordinator/course leader will follow the guidelines and manuals offered by the Office of Practice and Education. Please note that the Centre or Group is responsible for participants. For those who miss a class, you may share the Centre's login info with a participant, arrange for a repeat showing, or allow an excused absence. Shambhala Online will not provide access to the materials for individual use.
