Opening the Heart: Joy of Living Level II Meditation Workshop

Opening the Heart
Joy of Living Level II Meditation Workshop

With Senior Tergar Instructor Cortland Dahl

This weekend meditation workshop with Senior Tergar Instructor Cortland Dahl, 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 workshop includes video teachings by Yongey Mingyur Rinpoche, short presentations on the key points of meditation practice by Cortland Dahl, as well as guided meditations and discussion.

Saturday and Sunday, March 12-13 ~ 9am-5pm
