In a live online broadcast, Tenzin Wangyal Rinpoche offers a teaching and guides a meditation to mark the start of the Month of the Body — part of his free yearlong program “Bring Body, Speech & Mind to Life.” Open to all.

“Body” refers here not only to our physical body and the tangible world around us, but also to our individual sense of identity as a human being. The teachings, discussions, and practices explored during the Month of the Body help us to connect to the door of the body, clearing obstacles to health and well-being through movement and stillness. Resting our awareness in the stillness of the body opens the door to the clear, open, unchanging experience of our true nature and awakens clear, positive action.

In advance of his teaching, 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.
