Please note: We are taking a break and will resume our Monday night meditations on September 10.
Days: Monday Evenings
Time: 8:00 p.m. – 9:15 p.m. Please arrive 5 minutes early to get settled in.
Meditation allows us to calm the mind, open the heart, and live more fully in the present moment. The meditation teachings of Yongey Mingyur Rinpoche show us how to transform any experience, even difficult situations and emotions, into a source of joy. These meditation techniques can be practiced by anyone, regardless of faith or cultural background. Whether you’re new to meditation, or an old hand, please join in. We meet regularly to explore the richness that meditation can bring to our lives.
Books: The weekly program is based on Mingyur Rinpoche’s book The Joy of Living. We will also be referring to his book Joyful Wisdom.
Location: Bridge & Enrich (718 E 20th Ave; that’s Fraser & 20th)
Contact: Franka and Kelly
Cushion & chairs are on hand.
Donations are welcome to cover venue costs.
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 do not have access to a trained Tergar practice leader, facilitator, or instructor. Each session of this program includes two guided meditations, questions for discussion, selected readings from Mingyur Rinpoche’s two books, and take home meditation exercises. Practice groups operate independently of Tergar International, though more mature groups may eventually evolve into official Tergar Communities.
