Uncovering Your Natural
Awareness: A Spectrum of
Awareness Practice

with Diana Winston

7-10am PT / 10am-1pm ET / 3-6pm BST / 4-7pm CEST

Expand your mindfulness practice through learning about the Spectrum of Awareness.

Meditators often find themselves in a rut – repeating the same practices but wondering if there might be more, or if a different approach might be a better fit.

This search led Diana Winston, the Director of Mindfulness Education at UCLA’s Mindful Awareness Research Center, to develop the “Spectrum of Awareness,” which presents a range of approaches to mindfulness practice – from focused and investigative, to open and intuitive.

In this Day of Practice with Diana as our guide, we will learn more about the full spectrum of practices, then home in on “Natural Awareness,” inviting the open, spacious, mostly effortless awareness of awareness itself.

Through lecture, meditation and short guided practices, together we will expand the range of our meditation practice and learn to access deeper states of fundamental well-being.

Join this *live* 3-hour session to:

  • Learn the theory of the full Spectrum of Awareness
  • Practice a meditative approach that can expand your existing meditation practice
  • Access the spacious, sometimes called non-dual type of natural meditation through “Glimpse Practices,” and discover how they can be incorporated into your daily life

What is Day of Practice?

Sangha Live’s 3-hour, LIVE Day of Practice allows for you to drop in deeper, develop your meditation skills, and reset your intentions through sustained sitting.

Days of Practice includes longer periods of meditation, interspersed with wise teachings, an interactive Q&A with our teacher, and more.

Replay access will be available to all registrants within 48 hours of the live session.

How is Day of Practice different from Sangha Live’s Daily/Sunday classes?

Our shorter Daily Meditation (60 mins) and Sunday Sangha (90 mins) programs emphasize dharma teachings, while our longer Days of Practice (3 hours) emphasize development of meditation practice.

Daily practice is crucial for watering seeds of mindfulness, but extended periods of deep attention such as these, away from the hustle and bustle of daily life, can be uniquely fruitful.


Day of Practice is offered on a sliding scale basis, with a suggested rate of $35. We wholeheartedly welcome all to practice with us; no one turned away for lack of funds.
