We will meet on-line using the Zoom conferencing service.
We will begin our meditations at the regular time, 7 pm, however we kindly ask that you join the Zoom meeting 6:45 pm so that we can review the basics of how Zoom works and the protocols for interacting on-line during sharing or Q&A. Zoom is easy to use but practicing together on-line also means getting used to something new.
Our theme for this Wednesday, March 18th will be “Present Moment Awareness – Boundless Compassion”. We expect this first session to end no later than 8:30 pm. There will be guided meditation of about 20-25 minutes, followed by Dharma sharing followed by a 10 minute silent meditation before the end.
