Under Mingyur Rinpoche’s guidance, Tergar International has developed a Meditation Practice Group program to support groups that meet regularly to learn, discuss, and practice meditation, but who do not have access to a trained Tergar practice leader, facilitator, or instructor. Each session of this program includes two guided meditations, questions for discussion, selected readings from Mingyur Rinpoche’s two books, and take home meditation exercises. Practice groups operate independently of Tergar International, though more mature groups may eventually evolve into official Tergar Communities.
Meditation Group Details
The Tergar Practice Group of Groton is a meditation group meeting regularly in the town of West Groton located around 42 miles northwest of Boston. As a community of friends exploring the practice of meditation, we gather weekly to practice, study, and discuss meditation based on the Joy of Living teachings of Yongey Mingyur Rinpoche.
Our meetings are free and open to all. If you are new to meditation and would like to learn more, or if you are a seasoned practitioner and would like to deepen your practice, please join us as we learn how to transform the challenges of day-to-day life into sources of joy and inner peace.
Each session includes guided meditations and group discussion. Feel free to drop in anytime!
