Awakening Wisdom: Joy of Living 3
Video teachings by Mingyur Rinpoche
With Tergar Instructor Tim Olmsted
In this six week course, we will explore the causes of suffering and dissatisfaction through the practice of insight meditation. By bringing our unchallenged beliefs and patterns into the light of awareness, we can see how our rigid ideas often blind us to the richness of our true nature. The wisdom that arises through insight meditation allows us to see our inner experience clearly. This leads to a sense of freedom, well-being, and confidence that is rooted in awareness itself and available to us each and every moment.
Each lesson includes experiential teachings by Mingyur Rinpoche, as well as guided meditations and moderated discussions with Tergar Instructor Tim Olmsted. The first three videos will be available as soon as you register.
