“Spirituality doesn't exist on another level different from ordinary life."

- Chögyam Trungpa Rinpoche, Founder of the Shambhala Tradition


About Contentment in Everyday Life

We all experience thoughts or feelings of inadequacy, that nagging sense that we're just not good enough. This atmosphere of self-judgement can build until there's a palpable tension between our basic sense of self-worth and who we think we "should" be.

Insecurities may always arise, but when we interpret these thoughts and feelings as cold hard facts to be acted upon, dissatisfaction devours our time and energy, and life becomes a chore.

By letting go of the struggle to be something "better," we can make space for our inherently intelligent, compassionate, and strong nature to flourish.
