Session 2 of an all-day live webcast recorded in two sessions from the annual summer retreat at the Serenity Ridge Retreat Center in central Virginia, USA. Session 1, with H.H. Lungtok Tenpai Nyima Rinpoche, can be viewed here

In this video Tenzin Wangyal Rinpoche begins by guiding a meditation on Inner Refuge, and then gives a teaching (21:50) on the benefits of switching off your “inner navigation system” — the constant habit of looking for solutions, thinking and planning ahead, etc. Instead, one can rest in the inner refuge and be in the moment, fully connected with one’s body, breath and mind. Rinpoche then guides a second, brief practice (32:00) on turning off one’s navigation system. Following the teaching and brief practice, Rinpoche answers questions from the audience (39:25).
