Opening the Heart
Joy of Living 2 Meditation Workshop
With Tergar Instructor Antonia Sumbundu
Edinburgh, United Kingdom
In this weekend meditation workshop with Tergar Instructor Antonia Sumbundu, we will learn how meditating on loving-kindness and compassion can open our hearts to the world around us and relax the self-centered tendencies that lead to anxiety, dissatisfaction, and suffering. Cultivating loving-kindness and compassion helps us to see the basic goodness that all beings share. By relating to others in an open-hearted way, we bring peace to the mind and develop a sense of confidence and purpose. This, in turn, naturally brings harmony to our relationships and enables us to work with challenging situations more effectively.
The schedule for this weekend workshop includes video teachings by Yongey Mingyur Rinpoche, short presentations on the key points of meditation practice by Antonia Sumbundu, as well as guided meditations and discussion.
