Meditation Practice Groups

“Spending your time with true spiritual friends will fill you with love for all beings, and help you to see how negative attachments and hatred are. Being with such friends, and following their example will naturally imbue you with their good qualities, just as all the birds flying around the golden mountain are bathed in it’s golden light.” ~H.H. Dilgo Khyentse Rinpoche


 

We have been leading a number of online groups for the past several years.


These groups are a small, time-limited, online, closed groups of caregivers* committed to practicing mindfulness meditation for their own understanding and welfare and the welfare of others.


These groups are intended to support the establishing and maintaining of individual practice, monitoring and nurturing its natural unfolding while contributing and drawing upon the collective wisdom and shared experience of a like-minded community.


* caregivers: psychotherapists, health care professionals, chaplains, ministers, yoga teachers.


 

Overview of Online Groups


Closed groups of 8-10 therapists/ caregivers commit to deepening their meditation practice alone-together for a period of six months. 


Groups meet once a month online for 90 minutes.

Sessions open with a guided meditation followed by teaching, a brief check in with each person’s practice, group discussion, and Q & A.  


Structure & Expectations

In order for a sangha – a community of like-minded practitioners – to be cohesive and sustaining, members are asked to commit for six months at a time, at which point there is an opportunity to review and recommit.
