The Tergar Meditation Community, founded by the revered Dharma teacher and master of the Karma Kagyu and Nyingma lineages of Tibetan Buddhism Yongey Mingyur Rinpoche, has announced that Mingyur Rinpoche will lead an online meditation workshop from 30 March on the theme “Three Life Skills.”

“Meditation is much more than just focusing on the breath,,” Tergar said in an announcement shared with BDG. “In this half-day meditation workshop with renowned meditation expert Mingyur Rinpoche, learn how meditation can develop three lifelong skills for greater peace: being present, being kind, and being curious. Whether at home, school, or work, these skills can be applied anytime and anywhere to bring more joy, well-being, and resilience in the face of life’s ups and downs.”

The half-day workshop will examine the essence of meditation, and explore how to be present without worrying about the past or future, how to accept oneself and others with kindness, and how to develop wisdom through cultivating curiosity about the nature of reality.

“Thousands of people worldwide have found Mingyur Rinpoche’s meditation teachings simple yet transformative,” Tergar observed. “Enjoy the unique opportunity to receive practice guidance to apply three life skills anytime and anywhere. Practice with fellow students around the world and engage in small discussion groups.” (Tergar)

Mingyur Rinpoche, the founder of the Tergar Meditation Community, which has centers and practice groups across the world, is a renowned teacher and best-selling author whose books include: The Joy of Living: Unlocking the Secret & Science of Happiness (2007); Joyful Wisdom: Embracing Change and Finding Freedom (2009); and Turning Confusion into Clarity: A Guide to the Foundation Practices of Tibetan Buddhism (2014).

Born in 1975 in the Himalayan border region between Tibet and Nepal, Mingyur Rinpoche received extensive training in Tibetan Buddhist meditative and philosophical traditions from his father, Tulku Urgyen Rinpoche (1920–96), considered one of the greatest modern Dzogchen masters, and subsequently at Sherab Ling Monastery in northern India. After just two years, at the age of 13, Mingyur Rinpoche entered a three-year meditation retreat and then completed a second immediately afterward, serving as retreat master. At 23, Rinpoche received full monastic ordination.

Mingyur Rinpoche famously undertook a four-year solitary wandering retreat through the Himalaya from 2011–15. In recounting how he came to terms with the realities of his ambition to practice in the manner of a wandering yogi, Rinpoche revealed that he confronted many personal and spiritual challenges—including, at one point, his own mortality. Rinpoche has described the years he spent wandering in the Himalaya as “one of the best periods of my life.”*

Meditation is really quite simple. All we have to do is embrace each experience with awareness and open our hearts fully to the present moment. When we are completely at ease with our own being, the ripples of awareness naturally spread out in all directions, touching the lives of everyone we meet. — Yongey Mingyur Rinpoche
