A Boundless Heart:
Connecting to the World Through the Four Immeasurables
A weekend workshop with
Senior Tergar Instructor Tim Olmsted
St Augustine, Florida, USA
In a world that can feel increasingly challenging, it is completely natural for us to seek the peace and happiness that we all sense we’re missing. The more we search, the more we realize that everyone is seeking the same and that, in fact, our happiness and our very life is intimately connected with the lives and happiness of all others. For centuries, this insight has been explored and enriched through the application of the “four immeasurable attitudes” of loving kindness, compassion, joy, and equanimity. Through training in such a boundless heart and mind, we can discover our own innate happiness, and find richness and meaning in our connection to others and the world altogether.
In this weekend workshop with Senior Tergar Instructor Tim Olmsted, we’ll explore this beautiful and profound journey through teaching, discussions and sessions of meditation. This weekend program is open to anyone interested in transforming their heart and experience of the world, experienced meditators and those who are just starting out.
Tim Olmsted has been a student of meditation for more than forty years. For twelve of those years, he lived in Nepal, working as a psychotherapist and studying with many of the greatest Buddhist teachers of our time, including Mingyur Rinpoche’s father, Tulku Urgyen Rinpoche. Tim is the founder, with Mingyur Rinpoche, of The Yongey Foundation. He is also a senior instructor and cofounder of Mingyur Rinpoche’s community, Tergar International. He has also served as the director of Gampo Abbey, the largest Buddhist monastery in North America. Tim is the president of the Pema Chödrön Foundation.
