What can we do when we're low on energy and inspiration, but have a longing to be more connected with our life? Cultivating a meditation practice is a great way to find the ground we need to feel fully human again. Joining gentleness with discipline leads to a sense of joy.

Joy in Everyday Life is a 5-week course exploring the meaning of joy and the true source of personal energy and inspiration. The course introduces the experience of awakening our heart and extending loving-kindness to others as a means to continuous personal inspiration. This cheerful, perky joyfulness provides the ground we need to go forward on our journey with a genuine, sustainable enjoyment of daily life.

In the Joy in Everyday Life Course we'll work with a variety of topics through instruction, meditation, and discussion.

Prerequisite: Meditation in Everyday Life and/or Contentment in Everyday Life.
