san·gha /ˈsäNG(ɡ)ə/ noun 1. Community of meditation practitioners
Our half-hour includes greetings, a short talk, and a 20-minute mindfulness/compassion meditation
Wednesdays 7:15am Fridays at Noon Eastern Time
This long-running, live, weekly drop-in was designed to make it easier for beginners to learn to meditate and for experienced people to maintain a regular practice in community. Now, coming together in practice communities has never been more important.
Sign up for the Zoom link and with a click at the appointed time, you can join from any quiet place, greet your fellow practitioners, and settle in for a guided "sit." Whether or not you were able to sign on in a given week, you'll receive a recording of the week's meditation.
This offering is supported through voluntary donations. Suggested: $20-40/month.

What to Expect
Sign on with or without your web camera on. I give everyone the option to check in by sharing their name, location, and what feels present in the body-heart-mind. Then I explain the method of meditation for the day, guide a 20-minute meditation, and invite questions and comments before a check-out.
Whether you are sleepy, anxious, settled, challenged...I encourage you to show up. Whatever our condition, when we bring mindfulness to it, we expand our tolerance for a broader bandwidth of experience...and better feel what it is to be human.
Indeed, practice results in deeper self-knowledge, a greater sense of connection to others, enhanced ability to self-regulate, and less mental suffering.
