Taking Refuge: The True Heart’s Rest

7-10am PT / 10am-1pm ET / 3-6pm GMT / 4-7pm CET

What is true refuge for heart and mind? 

How can we find peace, confidence and fearlessness right now, amidst the turmoil in our everyday lives?

Despite its primacy in Buddhism, the concept of refuge in modern, lay lineages is often ignored, dismissed and misunderstood. Yet, it offers a way to establish our practice in that which is truly reliable; that which protects and liberates.

During this Day of Practice, using traditional symbolism & language, meditation practice, and chanting, we’ll discover how we can find peace, freedom and love in taking refuge.

 

I’ll be guiding you through practices for finding inspiration, confidence and wisdom in  ‘The Three Jewels’:

  • Buddha: the fundamental awake-ness which is ever-present and always available
  • Dharma: freely and fearlessly meeting the way things are right now
  • Sangha: our intimate, infinite connectedness with all beings

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 do I prepare?

You will want to prepare a space to sit comfortably and quietly for the three-hour duration.

Your personal link to join will be emailed to you upon registration. You’ll receive a reminder email 1-hour prior to the event.

Cost

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.
