Ter is a Tibetan word for treasure,  Gar means gathering.  So, Tergar can be understood as a place where people come together to find the sublime treasure … that helps us calm our minds, open our hearts and awaken wisdom.

Under the guidance of Yongey Mingyur Rinpoche, the Tergar Meditation Practice Group of Bozeman gathers to study and practice meditation. Mingyur Rinpoche’s approach to meditation focuses on the practice of mindful awareness, which unlocks the door to a calm mind, compassionate heart, and insight into the challenges of day-to-day life. Rinpoche’s teachings emphasize universal principles that are of profound benefit to people of all faiths and belief systems.

If you are new to meditation and would like to learn more, or if you are a seasoned practitioner and would like to deepen your practice, please join us.  Each session will include guided meditation and group discussion. Our meetings are free and open to all.

Ter is a Tibetan word for treasure,  Gar means gathering.  So, Tergar can be understood as a place where people come together to find the sublime treasure … that helps us calm our minds, open our hearts and awaken wisdom.

Under the guidance of Yongey Mingyur Rinpoche, the Tergar Meditation Practice Group of Bozeman gathers to study and practice meditation. Mingyur Rinpoche’s approach to meditation focuses on the practice of mindful awareness, which unlocks the door to a calm mind, compassionate heart, and insight into the challenges of day-to-day life. Rinpoche’s teachings emphasize universal principles that are of profound benefit to people of all faiths and belief systems.

If you are new to meditation and would like to learn more, or if you are a seasoned practitioner and would like to deepen your practice, please join us.  Each session will include guided meditation and group discussion. Our meetings are free and open to all.
