“This is it. When we are truly present, really here, this is all we could ever hope for, everything it should be.”
– Cheri Huber
Virtual Meditation Groups are a unique way to support your practice by meditating together with Sangha on a regular basis, no matter where you live. These "conference-call" meditation groups are ideal if there is no sitting group in your area or if you want to augment the meditation times offered by your local group.
How it works
A few minutes prior to the scheduled time, call the published conference call number. A trained facilitator will guide a group of callers through the meditation.
We follow a specific format for a meditation period in our practice.
- We meditate for 30 minutes.
- There is a recitation at the beginning and end of the meditation period. Copies of the recitations are available for download from the Resources section.
- Participants are welcome to bring the formality of the Meditation Hall at the Monastery into their home practice by being seated and ready to meditate 5 minutes before the meditation period is scheduled to begin.
- Please be on the call at least 2 minutes before the scheduled start time.
New time starting August 1st!
Saturday 7:30 a.m. Pacific
