In this weekend meditation workshop with Tergar Facilitators Kelly Ekman and George Hughes, we will explore the practice of insight meditation. By bringing our unchallenged beliefs and patterns into the light of awareness, we can see how our rigid ideas often blind us to the richness of our true nature. The wisdom that arises through insight meditation allows us to see our inner experience clearly. This leads to a sense of freedom, well-being, and confidence that is rooted in awareness itself and available to us each and every moment.
About the Facilitators:
Kelly Ekman had an interest in Buddhism and other Eastern traditions since a young age and spent much of her life exploring these belief systems. Kelly first met and took refuge with Mingyur Rinpoche in 2004. At his suggestion, she travelled to India and spent a number of years receiving teachings from Tai Situ Rinpoche, one of Rinpoche’s main root gurus. Kelly currently lives in Maple Ridge, British Columbia, and now that she is retired, she is dedicating her life to promoting and advancing Mingyur Rinpoche’s teachings.
George Hughes discovered Eastern philosophy and meditation while in high school, and has been a student ever since. He has also studied and taught yoga, massage, and other holistic healing modalities. George helped to found the Stuart, Florida Tergar Community in 2010. He has co-managed Tergar meditation retreats in Florida, Minnesota, Oregon, and Nepal. He currently resides in Kathmandu, where he supports Mingyur Rinpoche’s education programs and serves as Executive Course Administrator for the Tergar Institute of Contemplative Buddhism.
