Opening the Heart: Joy of Living 2
With Facilitators Scott Anderson and Kasumi Kato
Tergar Madison Meditation Center
Madison, Wisconsin, USA
In this meditation workshop with Facilitators Scott Anderson and Kasumi Kato, 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 workshop includes video teachings by Yongey Mingyur Rinpoche, short presentations on the key points of meditation practice by Scott and Kasumi, as well as guided meditations and discussion.
This retreat is open to meditators who have previously attended a Calming the Mind: Joy of Living 1 meditation workshop and meet the practice requirements, as well as to those who have practiced meditation regularly for at least three years.
