Tergar Canada Events
To support meditators along their chosen path, Tergar Canada hosts public talks, seminars, retreats, regular group meditation sessions, and other events. Tergar Canada events are meant to educate and inspire Canadians to cultivate awareness, compassion, and wisdom through the practice of meditation. Our programs and events may feature invited guest speakers, or be led by Tergar International instructors, Tergar Canada Facilitators, or Tergar Canada Practice Leaders.
Tergar Canada communities hold regular meditation groups that provide a thorough course of training in the fundamentals of meditation practice. Based on Yongey Mingyur Rinpoche’s two books, The Joy of Living and Joyful Wisdom, our groups use guided meditations, discussion, and daily meditation exercises to explore the cultivation of awareness, compassion, and insight – the cornerstones of spiritual practice. If you are new to meditation, our regular meditation groups offer a gentle immersion into the world of mindfulness. If you are following our Joy of Living or Path of Liberation programs, these groups provide a wonderful opportunity to deepen your experience of the core elements of the spiritual path.
Calming the Mind: Joy of Living 1 Meditation Workshop
- Saturday, May 4th 9 a.m. – 5 p.m. & Sunday, May 5th 9 a.m. – 5 p.m.
- Whitehorse, Yukon, Canada
- With Senior Tergar Instructor Myoshin Kelley
In this weekend workshop we will learn how cultivating awareness can help create a peaceful mind and joyful heart. The practice of meditation enables us to transform all experiences, even difficult emotions and painful thoughts, into sources of joy. Over the course of the weekend, we will explore the landscape of our experience with mindful awareness, learning how to use the body, sensory experiences, thoughts, emotions, and even awareness itself as supports for meditation.
The schedule for this workshop includes video teachings by Yongey Mingyur Rinpoche, presentations on the key points of meditation practice by Tergar instructor Myoshin Kelly, as well as guided meditations and discussion.
