Opening the Heart
Joy of Living 2 Meditation Workshop
With Tergar Facilitator Stephanie Wagner
Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA
In this weekend meditation workshop with Tergar Facilitator Stephanie Wagner, 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 Stephanie, 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.
About the Facilitator:
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 runs a weekly meditation program at Aveda Corporation, an environmentally-conscious beauty company based in Minneapolis, MN. Stephanie is a corporate trainer with a Master of Arts in Integrative Health and Well-Being Coaching from the University of Minnesota.
