Day of Practice

Saturday, May 21st

Connecting with Courage

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

How can we foster a courageous heart, to enable us to live with strength and authenticity?

While at times each of us may feel courageous, many of us often find courage to be elusive; courage comes and goes, and may be present in one part of our life, but not another.

More than ever, we need courage to survive these challenging times — from navigating struggles in our personal lives, to making important choices, to surviving ongoing global uncertainty.

What gets in the way of your courage? How can mindfulness help you to embrace your fears?

On this day of practice we‘ll explore courage as a strength of heart and mind. Together we’ll practice mindfulness meditation through sitting, walking, and movement, contemplative inquiry, and courage-focused meditation.

This event is cosponsored with the UCLA Mindful Awareness Research Center, where proceeds from this session will be donated.

Takeaways from this Day of Practice:

  • Discover the relationship of mindfulness practice to courage
  • Explore what gets in the way of your own courage
  • Learn new meditative practices to foster courage in 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.

How can I prepare?

We recommend preparing a space to sit comfortably and quietly for this three-hour duration.

Our program will be hosted on Zoom. Please download Zoom in advance/ensure that you have the latest version of Zoom downloaded for optimal experience.

Your Zoom link will be emailed to you upon registration, and we’ll send you a reminder email 1-hour prior to the event.


Day of Practice is offered on a sliding scale basis, with a suggested rate of $35. There will also be an opportunity to provide dana (generosity) during the event. No one turned away for lack of funds.

Your generosity supports the teacher and their transmission of the Dharma, as well as the accessibility of Sangha Live programming.
