Befriending Yourself – Loving the World
A weekend workshop with
Senior Tergar Instructor Tim Olmsted
St Augustine, Florida, USA
In these turbulent times, the very idea of staying open and connected to others seems utterly far-fetched. And yet, the quality of our lives, and life itself, is completely dependent on the well-being of the entire human family. The key to discovering and opening to this reality rests on our ability to cultivate and maintain a warm and sensitive relationship to ourselves, our experience, and even to those people and circumstances with whom we have the most difficulty. Along the way, we discover a world that is rich, workable, and fundamentally good.
Anyone interested in transforming their relationship to themselves and their world, old hands and those new to the path of meditation, will find this weekend deeply enriching.
In this weekend workshop, Senior Tergar Instructor Tim Olmsted will explore this profound personal journey through teachings, discussions, and sessions of meditation. Please join us for what will surely be a transformative weekend.
Tim Olmsted has been a student of meditation for the past 40 years. For twelve of those years, Tim lived in Nepal and worked as a psychotherapist. There he studied with many of the greatest Buddhist teachers of our time, including Mingyur Rinpoche’s father, Tulku Urgyen Rinpoche. After returning from Nepal, Tim founded the Yongey Foundation to support Mingyur Rinpoche’s activities in Asia. Tim served as director of Gampo Abbey, a monastery in Cape Breton, Nova Scotia. He is the founder and president of the Pema Chödrön Foundation.
