You don’t have to live in a cave or some exotic monastery to meditate. In fact, it’s something you can do whenever you want, regardless of where you are and what you are doing. Mingyur Rinpoche’s approach to meditation teaches us how to use the ups and downs of daily life as gateways to awakening. All you need to meditate a sincere desire to open your heart and mind to the present moment.
The Joy of Living is a path of meditation practice that can be followed by anyone, regardless of religious or cultural orientation. Though rooted in the ancient Buddhist teachings of Tibet, the practices taught in the Joy of Living are not religious in nature. They deal with basic functions of the mind, such as mindful awareness and the movements toward happiness and away from suffering. In working with these qualities of mind, we gradually transform our relationship to present–moment experience, learning to approach every thought, feeling, and sensory experience with unconditional warmth and acceptance.
