No longer deterred or depressed by obstacles, we can include everything as part of the path. The challenges of daily life become opportunities for both contemplative practice and social action. Meditation sharpens our intelligence and uncovers our wisdom. Participants will receive practical instructions for discovering trust and magic, even in the midst of challenge.

This class is the fifth and final in the series of "In Everyday Life..." classes, which are designed to support and complement the five Shambhala Training weekend intensives.

This class is a pre-requisite if one wants to continue onto the Rigden Weekend.

Fearlessness in Everyday Life

This class is designed to be available to anyone in the Northern California Shambhala Region. The first three classes are online; final class in person.

January 9, 16, 23 online & February 2 in person at Berkeley Shambhala

Generosity Policy
The Berkeley Shambhala Center is funded solely by your membership and program donations. Thank you for your generosity as you consider what you can pay for each program at our Center. We strive to price our programs in a way that accurately reflects the financial need of our Center and the cost to us of producing the program.
We are committed to offering our programs to everyone, regardless of their financial situation. If you are unable to meet any of our listed pricing tiers please contact us to discuss your current needs. In addition to offering scholarship pricing for those in need, we also offer the option of paying for some programs in installments. Please use the “pay in accord with your circumstances” option when registering and enter the amount that you can offer.

What is the Patron Price?
The other aspect of our Generosity Policy is our Patron Price. Those who are able to offer more than the regular program price can select the Patron Price option.  By selecting this option, your generosity is helping to cover the costs of those who may not be able to pay the full price of the program. Thank you for your consideration, and for helping all to receive the treasure of the Shambhala Dharma.
