    New to meditation? We are here for you. There will be a meditation instructor available to those of you who are new to meditation. In a breakout room, you will receive instruction on our meditation technique, some background about our community, tips for establishing a home practice and answers to any questions that may arise for you. After instruction, you will be able to join the other meditators for the dharma talk and discussion.

    Please help us hold a strong container by being mindful of the timing of your arrival as well as the decorum you bring to the online experience. Treat the virtual environment as sacred space.
