One-Day Meditation Workshop: Learn to Meditate or Deepen your Practice

November 20, 2021 @ 10:00 am - 5:00 pm EST

Derek Kolleeny

Join us for this special one-day program designed for beginning and aspiring meditators, as well as people who want to deepen their meditation practice. The workshop will include talks, practice sessions, interviews, and guided meditations that support building a daily practice with compassion and openness. This workshop is presented by the Westchester Meditation Center (WMC) and led by one of WMC’s three senior teachers, Derek Kolleeny.

WMC is dedicated to diversity, equity, inclusion, and fostering belonging for all. Everyone is invited. Differences and unique perspectives are embraced.

The meditation technique taught in this workshop was developed by Chogyam Trungpa Rinpoche (1939-87), a Tibetan Buddhist meditation teacher who offered a uniquely different form from other forms of meditation and in many ways contrary to the usual notions about meditation. His view was that “meditation is a process of working through our self-deception.” Chogyam Trungpa Rinpoche was a highly accomplished meditation master, scholar, translator, poet, and artist. He taught extensively in North America during the last seventeen years of his life and authored dozens of books based on hundreds of talks given on a broad array of topics. Many people of many generations have found his guidance inspiring to their daily lives and meditation practice.
