Join Tenzin Wangyal Rinpoche for a live online teaching, the opening broadcast of his new yearlong program, “Embracing Life with Wisdom & Compassion.” Free and open to all! As the Tibetan New Year begins (Year of the Water Hare), our focus this month is on meeting any depression we may experience in our body, speech, and mind with openness and warmth, clearing and opening the pathways of joy that are inherent to us. Recordings of simultaneous translation are available in Chinese | Spanish. (French and Portuguese recordings may be available soon here)

View on Facebook to join the chat.

In advance of the broadcast Rinpoche encourages creating a bit of space for meditation in your house — in a quiet, peaceful location where you can feel some sense of warmth and connection to yourself. You might provide a comfortable cushion to sit on, and a candle or stick of incense. A supportive outer space can support your inner space during meditation.
