(Mostly Regular/Daily) Virtual Meditation Groups

As previously stated, fortunately or unfortunately, or both, or neither, Zoom services, studies groups, retreats and shorter practice periods are part of meditation practice for folks at this time.

There are benefits to both solo meditation and practicing with a group. In a way, we all basically both arrive on earth alone and leave alone, being separated from all we hold dear. Solo practice can allow not only coming to terms with this but also cultivating a contentedness informing skillful thought, speech and action while we’re here. Group practice allows for teachers, community, friends, honorings, external validation (if still helpful), and support for meditation practice and all associated with it and beyond.

A sort of twist to this, as a teacher once told me, just as you can tap into the benefits of being and practicing outdoors simply by tuning in to what that’s like while indoors, one can practice solo meditation as if they were in a group setting and vice versa.

Awaken the World Drop-in Meditations:

SILENT MEDITATIONS EVERY DAY 8AM AND 8PM EST

No guidance is offered during our daily hour long silent meditations, just a start and end bell. The meetings offer a space for sitting in silence, listening to a recorded Awaken the World meditation, or any recording that best serves your practice.  We do ask that you remain as still as possible and keep your audio muted.  https://zoom.us/j/6131117777
