Calming the Mind
Joy of Living 1 Meditation Workshop
With Tergar Facilitator Kasumi Kato
Madison, Wisconsin, USA
Meditation enables us to transform all experiences, even difficult emotions and painful thoughts, into sources of joy. The modern world has become fascinated with the practice of meditation. With all the hype and glossy images on magazine covers, it would be easy to think that meditation is about sitting in the right posture, using a special technique, or forcing the mind to be calm or relaxed all the time. But the real power of meditation isn’t in the method. It’s in shifting our perspective.
The key to this shift in perspective is awareness. In this weekend workshop, we will learn to transform our experience by exploring sensations, thoughts, emotions, and even awareness itself as supports for meditation.
This program offers step-by-step instructions that will benefit those new to meditation and inspire those who have an existing practice. The schedule for this weekend workshop includes video teachings by Mingyur Rinpoche, presentations by Tergar Facilitator Kasumi Kato, as well as guided meditations and discussion. It is suitable for people of all faiths, as well as both beginning and experienced meditators.
For those of you who have taken Calming the Mind before, we have some exciting news! The course includes:
- New videos from Mingyur Rinpoche
- New guided meditations
- Tools to make meditation a habit in your daily life including a free app to track your sessions and support your practice
