Opening the Heart
Joy of Living 2 Online Meditation Workshop
With Tergar Facilitator George Hughes
In this weekend meditation workshop with Tergar Facilitator George Hughes, 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 George, as well as guided meditations and discussion.
Please join us if you have experience with meditation or if you have attended Calming the Mind: Joy of Living 1. Contact us if you are unsure.
