Based on the Joy of Living teachings of Yongey Mingyur Rinpoche, our monthly meditation group explores meditation techniques designed to calm the mind, open the heart, and awaken wisdom. If you are new to meditation and would like to learn more, or if you are a seasoned practitioner and would like to deepen your practice, please join us as we learn how to transform the challenges of day-to-day life into sources of joy and inner peace.
Each session includes guided meditations, group discussion, selected readings from Mingyur Rinpoche’s books, and take home meditation exercises.
Our meetings are freely offered and open to all. Drop in anytime!
Under Mingyur Rinpoche’s guidance, Tergar International has developed a Meditation Practice Group program to support groups that meet regularly to learn, discuss, and practice meditation but who may not have access to trained practice leaders, facilitators, or instructors. Practice groups operate independently of Tergar International, though more mature groups may eventually evolve into official Tergar Communities. The Oregon, Wisconsin Practice Group is unique in that it is a satellite community of Tergar Madison, with access to its many programs that are offered by trained practice leaders, facilitators, and instructors.
