    Room: Virtual Online Meeting

    Welcome to a space being offered to provide support and comfort to BIPoC individuals who may enjoy the sacredness of sharing common life experiences.

    The sitting will start with few minutes grounding into earth, into body, into breath, and then into heart.  Then with simple instruction on Shamata/ vipassana, we will do a 15-minute sit, 5-minute walk, 15-minute sit.  Afterward, we will engage in pairs conversations to listen and speak to each other about our practice, and our lives which may be stimulated with a couple of questions.

     What participants will learn and why it is important to study and practice mindfulness and Shambhala principles.  Participants will learn meditation, deep listening, and have an opportunity to have a meditation community with other people of color at a time where such a community is most needed.
