Joy of Living Level 1: Calming the Mind
About the Joy of Living Level 1
Meditation enables us to transform all experiences, even difficult emotions and painful thoughts, into sources of joy. The modern world has become fascinated with the practice of meditation. With all the hype and glossy images on magazine covers, it would be easy to think that meditation is about sitting in the right posture, using a special technique, or forcing the mind to be calm or relaxed all the time. But the real power of meditation isn’t in the method. It’s in shifting our perspective.
The key to this shift in perspective is awareness. In this weekend workshop, we will learn to transform our experience by exploring sensations, thoughts, emotions, and even awareness itself as supports for meditation.
This programme offers step-by-step instructions that will benefit those new to meditation and inspire those who have an existing practice. The schedule for this workshop series includes video teachings by Mingyur Rinpoche, presentations by Tergar Facilitators Anya Adair and Robin Harris, as well as guided meditations and discussion. It is suitable for people of all faiths, as well as both beginning and experienced meditators.

About the Facilitators:
Anya Adair grew up at Kagyu Samye Ling Monastery and Tibetan Centre, which was founded in Scotland in 1967 by Akong Rinpoche. She was fortunate to meet many great meditation masters. She met Mingyur Rinpoche while visiting Palpung Sherab Ling in India in 2000 and became his student in 2003 when he began teaching Mahamudra in the United Kingdom. In 2017 she co-founded the Tergar Edinburgh practice group.
Robin Harris also grew up at Samye Ling, and helped to establish the Tergar Edinburgh Practice Group along with Anya. He first met Mingyur Rinpoche in India in 2001 and has been practicing under his guidance since 2007. He works for Tergar International as an Event Coordinator and has a background in teaching meditation to children and young people.
