Meditation and the Joy of Living
Cultivating Awareness, Compassion and Wisdom in Everyday Life
Teaching by Mingyur Rinpoche
Meditation enables us to discover a lasting contentment that is not subject to the fluctuating conditions of our lives, and to nurture the qualities of wisdom and compassion that naturally manifest from awareness itself. The Joy of Living is a secular path of meditation practice that nurtures basic functions of the mind, such as mindful awareness and the movements toward happiness and away from suffering. In working with these qualities of mind, we gradually transform our relationship to present-moment experience, learning to approach our thoughts, feelings, and sensory experiences with unconditional warmth and acceptance.
This workshop offers a rare opportunity to learn this accessible approach to meditation from Yongey Mingyur Rinpoche. Rinpoche will share practical advice on using meditation to cultivate awareness, compassion, and wisdom, sharing insights from his own experience and illuminating key points on meditation practice. He will also introduce new meditations, including breathing practices and physical exercises that he himself practiced during his extended retreat. Each day will include teachings from Mingyur Rinpoche and short periods of guided meditation and discussion.
This workshop is suitable for both novice and experienced meditators.
