The following is a list of special events.
Meditations on Breath
Monday through Friday, August 15-26, 7-8 PM
The healing power of breath takes center stage during the two-week break following the Nyingma Institute’s Summer quarter. Each weekday evening participants will be led through gentle breathing exercises that relax and re-tune body and mind.
In many Buddhist lands, the full moon is a time to gather for prayer and meditation. We continue this tradition at the Nyingma Institute through holding a chanting ceremony on full moon nights. Join Nyingma students and friends in chanting the Vajra Guru Mantra interspersed with periods of meditation. The chant is held in one of our classrooms and is led by a faculty member, from 8–9:30 PM.
No registration is required. The chant starts promptly at 8 PM, so please arrive a few minutes earlier.
Upcoming Full Moon Chant Dates
Open houses introduce Kum Nye, and meditation, and provide the opportunity to meet Institute faculty and staff. The open house program runs from 3–5 PM with light refreshments, followed by our regular Sunday chanting at 5 pm and talk at 6 PM. Come for some or all of the activities. All open house events are free.
