In this weekend meditation retreat, we’ll learn how cultivating awareness can help create a peaceful mind and joyful heart. The practice of meditation enables us to transform all experiences — even difficult emotions and painful thoughts — into sources of joy. Over the course of this weekend, we will explore the landscape of our experience with mindful awareness, learning how to use the body, sensory experiences, thoughts, emotions, and even awareness itself as supports for meditation.
This is an entry program to Yongey Mingyur Rinpoche’s wonderfully fresh and accessible teachings. It offers step-by-step instructions that will benefit those new to meditation and inspire those who have an existing practice. It is suitable for people of all faiths, as well as both beginning and experienced meditators. The schedule for the weekend includes DVD teachings by Yongey Mingyur Rinpoche, presentations on the key points of meditation practice by Tergar Senior Facilitator Kell Julliard, as well as guided meditations and discussion.
