Embodying Awareness: A day of online meditation

with Jill Shepherd, Willa Reid and Elizabeth Day

You are warmly invited to join our international sangha for a day of online meditation practice together, to strengthen and deepen our capacity for embodied awareness.

We will offer regular 30 minute meditation sessions every hour between 9:00 am and 5:00 pm NZT (see below for other time zones).

Each session will begin with a few minutes of guidance followed by silent meditation for 30 mins, then a half hour break before the next session begins. There will be a 1.5 hour break in the middle of the day, ending with an optional session of relational practice at 4:30 pm NZT, where you can connect with other meditators in breakout rooms to contemplate a dharma theme together.

You’re welcome to join as many of these sessions as you like, and as suits your time-zone.

This event is offered on a dāna / donation basis and is free to register.

NOTE Please make sure to register for a ticket, so that you can be sent the Zoom registration link a day before the event starts, plus more detailed information about the timing of meditation sessions throughout the day.

Coming Home to the Heart: A Brahmavihāra Retreat

Friday, June 30, 2023 – Sunday, July 2, 2023


This online retreat offers an opportunity to strengthen our natural resilience and capacity to meet life’s challenges with more steadiness, ease, and even appreciation. We will meet together throughout the weekend to explore the four brahmavihāra practices of kindness, compassion, appreciative joy, and equanimity, to directly experience the possibility of a balanced heart – no matter what our current life circumstances might be.
Each day, there will be teaching sessions that everyone is asked to attend. Outside those required sessions, you are encouraged to follow the retreat schedule of formal meditation practice to whatever extent you’re able, within your current life context.
This retreat begins on Friday, June 30, at 7:00 pm ET and concludes Sunday, July 1, at 12:00 pm ET. A full home retreat schedule and instructions will be offered.
