True happiness can only come from a mind that is peaceful and tamed. Tranquility meditation cultivates the mind's natural ability to abide peacefully. Mingyur Rinpoche will explain what tranquility meditation is and how it works. For those who would like to experience tranquility meditation in greater depth, Rinpoche will give a day-long program on Saturday, September 27, and lead us through various guided meditation practices.
Jill Satterfield of Vajrayoga, a close student of Mingyur Rinpoche, will be conducting guided posture and yoga for meditators at the program.
Mingyur Dorje Rinpoche was born in Nepal in 1976 and began his Buddhist monastic education as a child. He completed his first three-year retreat at the age of 17 and was appointed retreat master of Sherab Ling monastery. Mingyur Rinpoche is recognized as the 7th incarnation of Yongle Mingyur Dorje, a legendary Tibetan meditation master and scholar whose lineage made enormous contributions to the Buddhist canon. Rinpoche is known for his ability to convey the Buddhist teachings in a clear and skillful manner.
