Our weekly online sits happen every Tuesday at 7pm - sign up to below to receive email alerts.
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.
During this online sit, you'll get:
This online sit is for people with all types of meditation experience, from beginner to experienced - anyone who would like to connect with their practice in the supportive company of others.
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.
We will be using the online application Zoom to meditate with each other.
To use Zoom you will need a computer or a phone with a speaker and camera. Full instructions will be sent with each Online Meditation Alert or you can access them here.
You can also download the Zoom app here to familiarise yourself with it and make sure it meets your system requirements.
Many of you have asked us to record and share these meditations, so our sessions will be recorded, edited by The Sharpham Trust and put online for people to access, accessible here: www.sharphamtrust.org/resources
We're only recording audio, not video, and any post-meditation discussion will be edited out and will not be used.
Your participation in the session is taken as consent for us to do this.
The session will begin at 7pm on Tuesdays. Please be prompt.
Each session will incorporate a 30-minute sit, with enough time on either side to settle in.
