If everything can be a support for cultivating awareness, how about the natural world? The natural world, with its beauty and patterns, is an incredible guide to discovering the deeply nourishing and liberating qualities of our own minds. Our natural awareness is an expression of nature in so many ways, including its profound openness and resilience. Connecting with this spacious awareness opens a door to love and insight. By contemplating nature – whether in the form of a wild forest, a neighborhood park, or even a single houseplant or our own bodies – we can learn to recognize the naturalness inside ourselves, and take inspiration from nature’s ability to include beauty in all of its expressions. Join Tergar Instructors Myoshin Kelley and Antonia Sumbundu for a weekend of reflections and practices that will explore the depths of the natural awareness that is always present within us.

Myoshin Kelley attended her first meditation retreat in 1975. Through the ensuing years she has received dharma instructions from several renowned Buddhist meditation masters in the Theravada, Zen, and Vajrayana traditions. In 2003, she was appointed the teacher in residence at the Forest Refuge, the long-term practice center at the Insight Meditation Society in Massachusetts. Myoshin was introduced to Vajrayana teachings in 1993 and met Mingyur Rinpoche in 1998 when he first visited the US with his brother, Tsoknyi Rinpoche. Since then she has practiced with Mingyur Rinpoche in North America and Asia benefiting from his skillful, lucid instructions on the profound teachings of Mahamudra. She moved to Minneapolis in 2010 to help support Mingyur Rinpoche in his worldwide vision and leads programs internationally and locally.
Antonia Sumbundu began her formal practice in 1988 after attending a talk by the Dalai Lama. Her first Buddhist teacher was the 3rd Jamgon Kongtrul Rinpoche. Following his death in 1992, she studied with a variety of teachers, including Chokyi Nyima Rinpoche, Chokling Rinpoche, and Tsoknyi Rinpoche. In 2002 she met Mingyur Rinpoche, and began to receive teachings from him. Antonia was already a meditator with a keen interest in the clinical application of meditation when she began studying psychology. She holds a master’s degree in MBCT from Oxford University, and is an Associate with the Oxford Mindfulness Center.
