The Path of Liberation builds on the foundational teachings of the Joy of Living, presenting a series of meditation techniques designed to strip away the causes of suffering and uncover the radiant awareness that underlies all experience. This course of practice and study, based on the ancient Buddhist teachings of Tibet, addresses the fundamental confusion that lies at the root of all suffering.
At the Tergar Meditation Center, we hold regular retreats, workshops, and seminars for those who wish to explore the Buddhist teachings of Tibet. Below you will find more information about the different events we offer and when they are held. We hope you can join us!
Path of Liberation meditation group
Our Path of Liberation group meets once a month to practice Mingyur Rinpoche’s Nectar of the Path. Beginning in the fall we also hold a monthly Nature of Mind class that meets to review the text from the previous retreat at St John’s University. From time to time we also offer a day long workshop for anyone who is doing Ngöndro practice. Details will be posted below as they are available.
Exploring Buddhism Program
Tergar’s Exploring Buddhism Program is a multi-year program that covers the Three Vehicles of Buddhism: the Foundational Vehicle, the Great Vehicle, and the Vajra Vehicle.
