Calming the Mind Joy of Living Meditation Workshop

For all levels.

Created by Tibetan meditation expert Yongey Mingyur Rinpoche, the Joy of Living meditation practice helps you create a peaceful mind and a blissful heart. Kell Julliard blends guided meditation, discussion, and presentations with video teachings by Rinpoche to help you to explore these wonderfully fresh and accessible practices.

In this retreat, you learn how to

  • Rest in open awareness, a state of spacious and alert presence
  • Transform everything that you encounter daily—sights, sounds, tastes, and sensations—into a perfect support for meditation
  • Work skillfully with physical pain, difficult emotions, and destructive thought patterns
  • Use meditation as the basis for a lifelong path of awakening.

These techniques are a perfect accompaniment to yoga practice and training.
