A series of meditation sessions brought to you by The Sharpham Trust.

These 40-minute sessions - a 30-minute meditation with 5 minutes either side - will be a weekly space to sit and connect through meditation guided by Sharpham Trust teachers and volunteer coordinators.

Only through our connectedness to others can we really know and enhance the self. And only through working on the self can we begin to enhance our connectedness to others
                                                              - Harriet Goldhor Lerner
 

The sit will take place online using the platform Zoom (see further information below to ensure you have the minimum tech requirements). We'll send out guidance for using Zoom and getting the best out of the sit in each email. Or see below for more details.
 



This weekly sit is part of a family of online offers including a 1-day Retreat at Home, a 3-day Retreat at Home, an 8-week course in Mindfulness for Health & Wellbeing and a Weekend Retreat at Home

The sit is by donation, or free.

To get the most out of this session you will need a room or place in your home where you will not be distracted by other people or sounds.

To join you will need to be fully available for the duration of the session, helping to create a greater sense of group coherence with less distraction for your fellow meditators.

Just thank you - that was so beautiful - and to be present with so many  [🙏]

 

Thank you so much for a lovely meditation.  I will definitely be joining again next Tuesday. A sit was so uplifting and lovely to be able to virtually connect with a group of like-minded individuals.

 

Thank you so much for tonight's meditation session. I enjoyed it very much and particularly liked Barry's pacing. I certainly felt calmer and more at peace than when I joined it.
