Beyond Mindfulness:

The Essence of Meditation with Yongey Mingyur Rinpoche

May 1, 2021

Many of us are currently facing unprecedented challenges in our lives. Meditation can provide us with the tools necessary to recognize our innate potential and increase our well-being, regardless of circumstance. The key here is understanding what meditation actually means. Meditation goes beyond the serene or blissed-out mindfulness presented in pop-culture. It is not a zombie-like state that is free from thought and emotion, either. As elucidated by Mingyur Rinpoche, meditation is a process of discovery — a path of realizing the inherent potential that exists within each of us. During this event, you will explore the core elements of meditation, including awareness, compassion, and wisdom. Join us and discover your true potential. This program is open to everyone and is especially intended for those who wish to begin learning how to meditate.

From Doing to Being: Online event

From Doing to Being:

Meditation and Effortless Awareness with Yongey Mingyur Rinpoche

May 21-23, 2021

In this program, you will explore the role of effortlessness in meditation. We often believe that effortful striving is the only way to transform our lives. However, as Mingyur Rinpoche will explain, the path is much more about shifting from our usual mode of doing to one of simply being. Over the course of the weekend, Mingyur Rinpoche will illustrate this topic through the lens of each of the three levels of the Joy of Living training series. This program is open to everyone.
