Interdependence: Meditation and the Ecology of the Heart
With Tergar Instructor Myoshin Kelley
and Tergar Facilitator Stephanie Wagner
Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA
This event has been cancelled due to COVID-19 virus concerns. Communication will be sent to current registrants with instructions on refunds. We will soon be announcing a webpage on Tergar.org for ongoing updates and support for practitioners at this challenging time. Stay tuned!
Meditation helps us to become more at ease in our own being. As we come to know ourselves in this authentic way, our eyes open to how deeply interconnected we are to all life. To harm another is to harm ourselves. As long as others are suffering, we too suffer. Broadening our view leads to a qualitative difference in how we live our lives, knowing how deeply entwined we are. During this meditation workshop, we will experience the truth of interconnectedness through mindfulness and compassion practice, teaching, and discussion, so that we may live from this place of a wise and compassionate heart.
In this workshop with Tergar Instructor Myoshin Kelley and Tergar Facilitator Stephanie Wagner, we will explore how meditation can help us understand our interdependence. This workshop is suitable for all meditators.
About the Instructor and Facilitator:
Myoshin Kelley attended her first meditation retreat in 1975 at the age of 20. Through the ensuing years she has received dharma instructions from several renowned Buddhist meditation masters in the Theravada, Zen, and Vajrayana traditions. In 1994 she accompanied her husband, Edwin, to the Insight Meditation Society (IMS) in Barre, MA, where she was trained as a meditation instructor by Joseph Goldstein and Sharon Salzburg. Myoshin was introduced to Vajrayana teachings in 1993 and met Mingyur Rinpoche in 1998. Since then she has practiced with Mingyur Rinpoche in North America and Asia benefiting from his skillful, lucid instructions on the profound teachings of Mahamudra. She moved to Minneapolis in 2010 to help support Mingyur Rinpoche in his worldwide vision and leads programs internationally and locally.
Stephanie Wagner had been meditating for several years prior to meeting Mingyur Rinpoche in 2009. Immediately she felt a sense of connection to Rinpoche’s message that anything in daily life can be used an opportunity to wake up. Stephanie is a board-certified health coach with a Master of Arts in Integrative Health and Well-Being Coaching from the University of Minnesota and is a trainer and program specialist with Healthy Minds Innovations.

Tergar Minneapolis/St. Paul is serious about making our meditation programs accessible to all. We are currently trying a pay-what-you-can registration approach to ensure that anyone who wants to participate is able to do so. You are invited to register at the base rate, a reduced rate, or without a cash payment. If your financial situation allows, in the spirit of interdependence, please consider registering above the base rate in order to support making these teachings as widely accessible as possible. Since Tergar is a registered non-profit, any amount you pay over the suggested level will be tax-deductible as applicable under current law.
If you wish to pay a different amount than our options allow, feel free to select the option “I will pay what I can at the door” and bring any payment amount to the event.
For your convenience, here are the preset options:
- $75 – Base Rate
- $0 – I will pay what I can, if anything, at the door
You will also have the opportunity to make an additional tax-deductible direct donation online prior to finalizing your registration transaction. Your generosity enables Tergar to offer financial assistance to those who might otherwise not be able to attend.
We make final arrangements for weekend events 10 days before the event start day. If you registered at a rate above “I will pay what I can” and cancel after April 8, there will be a $25 administration fee.
