"Mindfulness and Meditation allow us to open our hearts, relax our bodies, and clear our minds enough to experience the vast, mysterious, sacred reality of life directly. With Practice we come to know for ourselves that eternity is available in each moment.

Be Still and Know on Zoom

Sunday, February 20
9: 00 AM - 3:30 PM EST


Opening Heart Council Circle: 9:00 AM
Midday Heart Council Circle: 12:00 Noon
Closing Heart Council Circle: 3:00 PM

Join us for an opportunity to deepen your meditation practice.
Since you will be practicing at home, unlike the in-person gathering at Community Yoga, much of the day will be self-directed mindfulness practice.  Beyond the three Zoom Circles, you will determine the length of your other sitting sessions, mindful movement, study, prayer, and other activities.  I usually find it helpful to set my intentions and create my own schedule of activity for the day. 
At 9:00 AM, we will gather on Zoom for the Opening Heart Council Circle to practice deep listening and speaking from the Heart about our lives and practice and share our aspirations and intentions for the day.  We will then then share silent practice for a 20 minute period before launching off to our individual practices.

At 12 Noon, we will gather on Zoom for the Midday Heart Council.  Some people may be first arriving for the day, others may be checking in "midstream" for the day's practice, others may be leaving to go on to other activities.  Those who wish to will share a 20 minute period of silent meditation and a bow before closing the Circle.

At 3:00 PM, we will close the day with a final Heart Council Circle to share our experiences of the day, our gratitudes and appreciations, and a closing shared OM.  I will leave the Zoom Room open during the day if you'd like to check in via chat.  If you'd like to me to contact you after the event, please leave your email address.

> Beginners are welcome.
> Partial attendance is okay.
