Joy of Living 3 Meditation Workshop
With Senior Tergar Instructor Tim Olmsted
Portland, Oregon USA
In this weekend workshop, we will explore 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.
The schedule for this weekend workshop includes video teachings by Yongey Mingyur Rinpoche, short presentations on the key points of meditation practice by Senior Tergar Instructor Tim Olmsted, as well as guided meditations and discussion.
This retreat is open to meditators who have previously attended Joy of Living 1 and 2 meditation workshops and meet the practice requirements, as well as to those who have not attended these workshops, but who have practiced meditation regularly for at least three years. (For those who have not previously attended Joy of Living 1 and 2, we recommend that meditators attend these teachings in the future before continuing further.)
