May 4th

Date details +

    Stay-at-home orders have got us all working to adapt to new lifestyles and routines. Thankfully, we live in the age of the internet where we can continue to come together, face to face, and share space for meditation and connection. 

    We'd like to invite you to join us virtually with Zoom on the 1st Monday of the month from 7-8pm. 

    For meeting access information please contact [email protected]

    Meeting format includes:

    • 7-7:10pm Virtual Arrivals
    • 7:10-7:30 Sitting Meditation (no late arrivals; the room will be locked once meditation starts)
    • 7:30-8:00 Social Meditation or Group Discussion

    Please join us!

    Technical Advice and Decorum Notes:

    • In order to create smoother virtual arrivals, your camera and audio will be turned off when you enter Zoom. Once you are settled, you can turn your camera on. During the discussion, we ask that you stay muted until you’d like to speak.
    • If possible, get and use a headset with headphones + microphone (this is helpful, but not required).
    • If you are using your smartphone or similar device, use reliable wifi rather than your data plan (unless data is more reliable for you).
    • Use video and plan to be seen by others (not just audio) – if possible. If you have weak wifi/data, turning video off will help.
    • Put your screen/camera at eye level so you can sit up straight and not hunch over.
    • Treat the call as you would the shrine room: for example, plan not to get up and get water during the instruction and practice.
    • Sit in a room where you can close the door; if that’s not possible, please ask those in your home to give you space for the duration of the session.
    • Be open to the possibility of intimacy and community at a distance!
