About the Course

Have you ever been curious about meditation? This five-week recorded course provides introductory tools and teachings for working with meditation in everyday life. With simple instructions and support, mindfulness meditation practice can become part of your life, revealing innate stability, strength and clarity.

Janet Solyntjes presents the practice of peaceful abiding meditation and guidance on how to establish a meditation practice. The ways that meditation practice can improve the quality of daily life are discussed, along with the obstacles. By deepening our experience and understanding of ourselves through the practice of meditation, we more fully become who we already are. In addition, participants will receive:

  • Meditation posture instruction
  • Shamatha yoga instruction
  • Downloadable guided meditation.

The Way of Shambhala courses are designed for those who don’t live near a Shambhala Center, or who need a particular course in order to continue on the path. Each course in the series features a senior Shambhala teacher, an online community of participants, and facilitation by an experienced course leader. Over 5 to 8 weeks, course participants view recorded teachings, then contemplate and engage in exercises aimed at deepening their understanding.

Please note: This "open enrollment" course may be completed on your own schedule. We recommend that you keep a journal about the class and meet with your Meditation Instructor (let us know if you need one!) to discuss the contemplation topics. Questions? Contact [email protected].
