Level 1: Calming the mind

1. Recognizing Awareness

Have you ever felt a need to calm the mind and learn how to better deal with everyday stress, anxiety, and difficult emotions?

2. Everything Is Meditation

What if our distractions ceased to be distractions and instead became supports for awareness?

3. Emotional Balance

Difficult thoughts and emotions often get the better of us. Meditation gives us a fresh perspective on these experiences and helps us relate to them with openness and curiosity.

Read what current and former students have to say:

“I personally have felt the benefits of this course to be immense, and these effects have even been noted by close family members. Already the transformations have brought a freshness, lightness, and lightheartedness to living, even in the midst of much uncertainty.”

“2020 has been a year that has been a dark night of the soul for me personally and as we all know collectively. Thanks to Mingyur Rinpoche and his inconceivable teaching of Joy of Living, I have been able to deal with these adversities. Since then, my life is more and more happy.”

“Thanks a lot to everyone in the Tergar community. You saved my life from depression.I don’t know how to thank you… This Joy of Living is a life-saving program. My eyes are filled with tears while saying this. Thanks a lot from the bottom of my heart.”

“The Joy of Living course has been just amazing. It is a great basis for starting a practice. Everything I have learned will be with me forever. I think about the generosity and friendship of all of the instructors and guides and teachers of Tergar with so much appreciation.”

“Having lots of fun with this practice. Using dark chocolate as a support for meditation is really effective—not to mention pleasurable. Rather than mindlessly eating piece after piece, I have committed to a one bite at a time approach. I am really appreciating how the course is encouraging us to experience all of life as meditation.
