Calming the Mind: Joy of Living Level 1 – Online
Saturdays, 6 Feb to 13 March 2021, 9:30 – 11 AM AEDT
In this six-week online course, we will learn how to transform all experiences, even difficult thoughts and emotions, into sources of joy. With the guidance of Tibetan meditation master Yongey Mingyur Rinpoche, 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.
Each lesson includes experiential video teachings by Mingyur Rinpoche, as well as guided meditations and moderated discussions with Tergar instructors Myoshin and Edwin Kelley who will be leading the sessions live from the US each week.
This live, online course covers the same material as the in-person Joy of Living Level I weekend workshops, and all participants will receive a printable course and practice guide as well as opportunities to join ongoing weekly gatherings of the Tergar Melbourne Practice Group, and is currently open to practitioners throughout Australia regardless of your current location.
