Thursday, May 16, 7:00 – 9:00 p.m. – Transforming Emotions: Teachings on the Joy of Living
The Joy of Living is a path of meditation practice that can be followed by anyone, regardless of religious or cultural orientation. Meditation enables us to discover a lasting contentment that is not subject to the fluctuating conditions of the external world, and to nurture the qualities of wisdom and compassion that naturally manifest from awareness itself.

Friday May 17, 1:00 – 4:00 p.m. – Awakening Wisdom: Teachings on the Heart Sutra
The Heart Sutra is revered throughout the Buddhist world as one of the most profound teachings ever given by the Buddha. From Tibet to Japan, this short teaching is chanted daily as a clear synopsis of the principle of emptiness, or shunyata. The principle of emptiness invites us to explore our experience deeply, uncovering our rigid concepts and opening us to the limitless potential of our own minds. We are extremely fortunate to have Mingyur Rinpoche present these classic teachings from his own direct experience.
