In this unusual time of crisis, we have decided that it is best to suspend our Wednesday evening meditations at Woodside and Santa Cruz for the time being. Segyu Rinpoche recommends that each of us use this time to develop and deepen our daily practices, and to dedicate the energy of those practices to help all of us through the challenges we are now facing. The practices of calming the mind, balancing emotions, compassion and insight have great applicability in a time like this and we encourage you to contemplate and apply these ideas as much as possible.
We very much look forward to the time when we can all be back together in person. In the meantime, we hope everyone is well and we will keep you and your loved ones in our thoughts and practices as we all navigate this unusual time.
The Juniper Team
Rejuvenate in the healing energy generated through the Medicine Buddha practice. You will be invited to relax or meditate along with Juniper practitioners as they carry out and recite the Medicine Buddha meditation. Segyu Rinpoche will gradually introduce more healing practices and opportunities to participate.
The Vajrayana method of Buddhist learning includes a deep system of meditation and inner learning. This includes concentration and analytical meditation, and topics such as emotional balance, compassion and wisdom. These sessions will include a talk on these topics and several short meditations that we will do together and that can be continued by participants on their own.
A drop-in meditation session that includes meditation, a short talk and discussion on buddhist training for modern life. Beginners and experienced meditators welcome.
Juniper's meditation methods for training the mind can counter life's challenges and bring about a deep sense of sustained inner wellbeing, compassion and insight. In this half-day teaching, Segyu Rinpoche will discuss how we can develop the proper motivation to skillfully act with compassion, to alleviate our own and others’ suffering, so we can be a positive force in an increasingly stressful world.
