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/
Each week, we watch video teachings by Mingyur Rinpoche and practice together.
When: Tuesday, 7 p.m. – 8:30 p.m.
Where: Please contact Lynne Laberge at [email protected] for information about joining on Zoom.
