Calming the Mind
Joy of Living 1 Meditation Workshop
With Tergar Facilitator Kell Julliard
Washington, DC, USA
In this weekend workshop we will learn how cultivating awareness can help create a peaceful mind and joyful heart. The practice of meditation enables us to transform all experiences, even difficult emotions and painful thoughts, into sources of joy. Over the course of the weekend, we will explore the landscape of our experience with mindful awareness, learning how to use the body, sensory experiences, thoughts, emotions, and even awareness itself as supports for meditation.
The schedule for this workshop includes video teachings by Yongey Mingyur Rinpoche, presentations on the key points of meditation practice by Tergar Facilitator Kell Julliard, as well as guided meditations and discussion. This workshop is suitable for people of all faiths, as well as both beginning and experienced meditators.
About the Facilitator:
Kell Julliard has practiced meditation in a variety of traditions since his early twenties. In 2009 he met Mingyur Rinpoche and has since studied intensively with Rinpoche and the Tergar Meditation Community. During this time he has served as practice leader for the Tergar New York City Meditation Center. In addition to Kell’s role with Tergar, he currently serves as head of clinical research education at a large academic community hospital in Brooklyn, where he also teaches mindfulness meditation to faculty, residents, and staff.
