Opening the Heart
Joy of Living 2 Meditation Workshop
With Tergar Facilitator Kell Julliard
Elmira, New York, USA
In this meditation workshop with Facilitator Kell Julliard, 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 Mingyur Rinpoche, short presentations on the key points of meditation practice by Kell, 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:
Kell Julliard has practiced meditation in a variety of traditions since his early twenties. In 2009 he met Mingyur Rinpoche and has since studied intensively with Rinpoche and the Tergar Meditation Community. During this time he has served as practice leader for the Tergar New York City Meditation Center. In addition to Kell’s role with Tergar, he currently serves as head of clinical research education at a large academic community hospital in Brooklyn, where he also teaches mindfulness meditation to faculty, residents, and staff.
