In this practice-steeped dharma talk, a hilarious and engaging Mingyur Rinpoche invites the audience into an array of guided meditations and thought experiments around relaxed open awareness.
Continuing last episode's 2010 dharma talk hosted at Spirit Rock, aptly titled, The Neuroscience of Meditation, Mingyur Rinpoche picks back up answering audience questions on using meditation to work with fear of pain, if he would like people to pray for him during his next three-year retreat, and how to meditate properly with disabilities or physical difficulties. From there, he naturally and hilariously shares a smorgasbord of guided meditations and experiments highlighting open awareness.
Born in 1975, Yongey Mingyur Rinpoche is a much-loved and accomplished Tibetan Buddhist meditation teacher. From a young age, he was drawn to a life of contemplation. In addition to extensive training in the meditative and philosophical traditions of Tibetan Buddhism, Rinpoche has maintained a lifelong interest in Western science and psychology. Rinpoche currently teaches throughout the world, with centers on four continents. His candid and often humorous accounts of his own personal difficulties have endeared him to Buddhist and non-Buddhist students alike.
