Workshop Details

Join Bön Buddhist meditation master Tenzin Wangyal Rinpoche as he invites you to engage in the practice of meditation and reflection — to look intimately within and find the jewel that is hidden in your everyday experiences. Your ordinary body becomes a powerful doorway to connect with a sacred dimension of being. Through bringing together the focus of the mind, breath, and physical movements, you will be taught simple and powerful exercises to open your body and release the obstacles that obscure you from recognizing the unbounded space within: the inner refuge. Discover the inner refuge and the gifts of spaciousness, awareness, and warmth that bring healing and benefit not only to you, but to your relationships with others and the greater world.
