“The most effective approach to meditation is to try your best without focusing too much on the results.” Yongey Mingyur Rinpoche

Does your meditation practice feel like it’s stagnant, boring or just not working? Join us for an hour-long free webinar to explore a variety of meditation techniques with experienced Tergar guides. Receive practice instructions, clarify your questions, and connect with fellow meditators.


Event is free and open for everyone interested in starting a meditation practice.


When we start to meditate, we may think that meditation is a magic pill that can solve all our problems at once, at least at twice. But when we give it a try, we often feel disappointed and discouraged. We may even think that meditation is not for us, it’s too hard. In this webinar Tergar guides will explore the different problems and obstacles that are common among all beginning meditators. Join us to clarify what meditation really is, what to expect of it, how our mind works and much more.


During this webinar you’ll have the opportunity to: 

  • Learn how to start your practice
  • Clarify misunderstandings about meditation practice
  • Try new a meditation technique
  • Ask questions from experienced guides
  • Receive a guidance on how to move forward with your practice


This event will include: 

  • Teaching on meditation
  • Guided meditation
  • Q&A session

Thank you for your interest
