Day of Practice

Saturday, May 7th

Slow Down, Open Up:
Instructions for a Liberated Life

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

There may be reason to move fast, but there’s never good reason to rush.

If you check in with yourself, you’ll probably find you are often moving more quickly than is necessary, and that your attention is fixating more tightly than is helpful. Where are you rushing to (other than the cemetery)?

Slow down. Open up. These four little words, these two simplest of instructions, have been the most profound, far-reaching and ongoingly helpful for me over 30 years of practice, since I first wrote them in a meditation journal on a long retreat in India, in 1992.

We’ll be exploring ways of slowing down and opening up, together, at this Day of Practice on May 7th. Join me for a few hours of training the mind, freeing the heart, and opening up to a life without friction.

By joining us, you’ll learn ways to:

  • Regulate your nervous system
  • Rest in non-stimulation
  • Enliven your senses
  • Dissolve boundaries

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 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.
