This page provides information on ongoing programs. We invite you to join us!
Drop-in Meditation Group
Every week we cover different techniques of mindfulness and compassion meditation and learn how to apply these practices to daily life. Open to everyone, regardless of belief or experience. Feel free to drop in anytime!
When: Every Sunday from 9:30 a.m. – 11:00 a.m.
Nectar of the Path Group Practice
This practice, written by Mingyur Rinpoche in 2010 while on retreat at St. John’s in Minnesota, covers many of the core elements of Buddhist teachings, with chants, aspirations, and meditation practice. This is open to everyone. At the same time, please note that this is a “Buddhist” practice: it is based on the fundamental Buddhist concepts of refuge, bodhicitta, and relationship to the teacher. More information on the practice can be found here: learning.tergar.org/2016/04/23/nectar-of-the-path/
When: First and third Sundays of the month from 8 a.m. to 9:15 a.m.
