About Awakening Wisdom: Joy of Living 3


To bring an end to suffering, we need to cut through dualistic habits of perception and the illusions that hold them in place—not by fighting or suppressing them, but by embracing and exploring them

Dates for our next Awakening Wisdom online will be announced soon.

Course Overview

In this six-week course, we will explore the practice of insight meditation. By bringing our unchallenged beliefs and patterns into the light of awareness, we can see how our rigid ideas often blind us to the richness of our true nature. The wisdom that arises through insight meditation allows us to see our inner experience clearly. This leads to a sense of freedom, well-being, and confidence that is rooted in awareness itself and available to us each and every moment.

Each lesson includes experiential teachings by Mingyur Rinpoche, as well as guided meditations and moderated discussions with a senior Tergar instructor. The first two videos—The Cause of Happiness and Seeing the Nature of Reality—will be available as soon as you register.
