Day of Practice

Saturday, April 2nd

A Heart That Sings:
Exploring the Power of Devotional Practice

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

Learn to let your heart wide open, through time-honored Buddhist traditions.

All spiritual traditions have a heart-core of devotional practices, yet this is often absent in the lay, post-modern dharma world. Devotion inclines the heart towards love, gratitude, wonder and surrender.

On this day, we will explore traditional Buddhist devotional practices and frameworks through teachings and practices including chanting, meditating, and bowing. We’ll investigate the power and possibility of devotional practice, and the obstacles we might encounter around devotion.

This program will support you whether you already love devotional practices, or find yourself uncomfortable or skeptical about them.

May we all be deeply devoted to the flourishing of life, in all its dimensions.

Through this Day of Practice, you’ll explore:

  • What is worth being devoted to?
  • How do you express devotion?
  • What would be a devotional practice that would suit you?

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 is available to all registrants, in case you are unable to join us live or would like to re-watch.

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 the three-hour duration.

How to join instructions will be emailed to you upon registration.

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.
