These free courses teach how to begin meditating in simple, easy ways.

Course Dates

Open at all times, self paced.
These free, self-paced courses are designed for people who would like to begin meditating on a daily basis. Tenzin Wangyal Rinpoche , the founder and principle teacher of Ligmincha International, provides instruction for simple practices that anyone can do on their own including: a meditation on stillness and spaciousness, the Nine Breathings of Purification, Calm Abiding, Tsa Lung exercises, the 3 Doors, and Guru Yoga. After completing these courses you will have the skills you need for a simple daily meditation practice that can improve many dimensions of your life.
Part 1 of the course is presented in four sections:
Section 1: Connecting with Your Inner Stillness and Silence
Section 2: Using the Breath to Calm the Mind
Section 3: Expanding Your Meditation Practice through Calm Abiding
Section 4: Awakening the Sacred Body with Tsa Lung
Part 2 of the course adds two more dimensions to your practice:
Using the 3 Doors to connect to the 3 Refuges
Using the guru yoga prayer to connect with the lineage and all our teachers

Each part includes an introduction and a series of short videos from 2 to 13 minutes in length. The videos include explanations of the meditation methods, demonstrations, and guided meditation sessions, everything you need to support your practice. Part 1 of the course is available in English, Spanish, French and Polish.

Together these courses will give you a good foundation for your meditation practice, and are complete as they are. However there are certainly more subtle details that you can learn about these practices in order to deepen you meditation. If you would like to expand your understanding of these practices further we recommend Tenzin Rinpoche’s book Awakening the Sacred Body, our other online courses, and retreats offered through Ligmincha around the world.
