Calming the Mind
Joy of Living 1 Meditation Workshop
With Senior Tergar Instructor Cortland Dahl
Assisted by Stephanie Wagner
Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA
In this 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 video teachings by Yongey Mingyur Rinpoche, presentations on the key points of meditation practice by Senior Tergar Instructor Cortland Dahl and Stephanie Wagner, as well as guided meditations and discussion. This weekend is suitable for people of all faiths, as well as both beginning and experienced meditators.

Stephanie Wagner had been meditating for several years in a different tradition prior to meeting Mingyur Rinpoche in 2009. Immediately she felt a sense of connection to Rinpoche’s message that anything in daily life can be used an opportunity to wake up. Stephanie is a passionate advocate of bringing meditation into the workplace, and runs a weekly meditation program at Aveda Corporation, an environmentally-conscious beauty company based in Minneapolis, MN. Stephanie is a corporate trainer pursuing a Master of Arts in Integrative Health and Well-Being Coaching at the University of Minnesota.
