Nyinthun – Day of Meditation


Nyinthun – Day of Meditation

Nyinthun is a day-long practice based on a month-long period of meditation designed by Chögyam Trungpa Rinpoche specifically for his Western students in the 1970s. The word nyinthun comes from the Tibetan word nyin, “day” and thün, “practice session.”

We invite you to take a break and join us for a day of meditation practice in the peaceful retreat atmosphere at our London centre. For those who are already familiar with meditation, this is an opportunity to stabilise and deepen your practice. The day includes periods of sitting and walking meditation, following the practice instructions of Chögyam Trungpa Rinpoche.

These meditation days will usually be held on the

FOURTH SATURDAY OF EACH MONTH between January and June.

(Please check on the calendar for changes).

Who is this event for? Anyone who has had some meditation instruction and experience.

What will the day involve?

10am to 1 pm: Meditation practice (with tea break)

1pm to 2pm: Lunch

2pm to 4:30pm: Meditation practice

We are encouraged to bring lunch and eat together in the spirit of this tradition. The majority of the day will be in silence, except at lunchtime, to help deepen the practice. If it is not possible to stay for the whole day, please come or go at lunchtime.

“It’s extraordinarily powerful that we decide just to sit… Such a brave attitude, such a wonderful commitment, is magnificent. It is very sane, extraordinarily sane.”

Chögyam Trungpa Rinpoche
