The practice of meditation puts us in touch with a source of inner peace and well-being that we can experience at any time, even when we find ourselves in chaotic or challenging circumstances. In Tibetan Buddhism, the challenges of life are used as opportunities to nurture awareness, compassion, and wisdom. The process of dying is said to present a unique and potent opportunity to awaken. The key to taking advantage of this opportunity lies in two of the most common experiences in our lives: the states of deep sleep and dreaming. For more than a thousand years, meditation practices that enable us to explore these states of consciousness have been valued as profound methods for transforming the mind and preparing for the moment of death.

In this evening talk, +Mingyur Rinpoche  will offer teachings on sleeping, dreaming, and ways to approach death with dignity, awareness, and care. His talk will draw on classical teachings from the Tibetan Buddhist tradition and his own experience while on retreat. Neuroscientist Dr. Richard Davidson will offer a scientific perspective based on his research on the neural bases of emotion and methods to promote human flourishing, including meditation. The talk will include a question and answer session and is suitable for anyone with an interest in meditation and Tibetan Buddhism.

Meditation enables us to discover a lasting contentment that is not subject to the fluctuating conditions of our lives, and to nurture the qualities of wisdom and compassion that naturally manifest from awareness itself. The Joy of Living is a secular path of meditation practice that nurtures basic functions of the mind, such as mindful awareness and the movements toward happiness and away from suffering. In working with these qualities of mind, we gradually transform our relationship to present-moment experience, learning to approach our thoughts, feelings, and sensory experiences with unconditional warmth and acceptance.

This workshop offers a rare opportunity to learn this accessible approach to meditation from +Mingyur Rinpoche . Rinpoche will share practical advice on using meditation to cultivate awareness, compassion, and wisdom, sharing insights from his own experience and illuminating key points on meditation practice. He will also introduce new meditations, including breathing practices and physical exercises, that he himself practiced during his extended retreat. Each day will include teachings from Mingyur Rinpoche and short periods of guided meditation and discussion with Senior Tergar Instructors Edwin and Myoshin Kelley. This workshop is suitable for both novice and experienced meditators.

All price tiers are general admission seating and include a vegetarian box lunch. You will have the opportunity to select vegan and gluten free options during registration.
