Opening The Heart

Joy of Loving 2 Meditation Workshop

Friday, February 7th, 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm

With Senior Tergar Instructor Myoshin Kelley

Assisted by Facilitator Franka Cordua-von Specht

Whitehorse

Canada

In this weekend meditation workshop, we will learn how meditating on loving-kindness and compassion can open our hearts to the world around us and relax the self-centred tendencies that lead to anxiety, dissatisfaction, and suffering. Cultivation 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 for effectively.

The schedule for this weekend workshop includes video teachings by Yongey Mingyur Rinpoche, short presentations on the key points of meditation practice by Myoshin Kelley, as well as guided meditations and discussion.

You are welcome to join this weekend program if you have some experience with mindfulness meditation or if you have previously attended Calming the Mind: Joy of Living 1.
