You are invited to a weekend of meditation. Friday evening will be a public talk: 'Why Meditate? Discovering Our Inner Wealth in the Present Moment.' This talk will explore the vastness of our human potential. How meditation, the act of paying attention to our present moment experience, can begin to help us discover an inner wealth of peace, joy and contentment. This evening will be open to all and is optional for people attending the full weekend.
During the weekend meditation workshop, we will 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.
The schedule for this weekend workshop includes DVD teachings by Yongey Mingyur Rinpoche, presentations on the key points of meditation practice by Tergar instructor Myoshin Kelley, as well as guided meditations and discussion. This weekend is suitable for people of all faiths, as well as both beginning and experienced meditators.
