Day of Practice

Saturday, November 25th

Insight and Integration:
How Your Practice
Becomes Your Life

with Martin Aylward

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

Explore how to best support a meditation practice that is alive with insight, and how to live in the light of those insights

Meditation can open up unusual states of peace, clarity, spaciousness and insight.

Yet there is a whole art to integrating the benefits of meditation into the wider sphere of our lives; to having meditative insights actually change our lives; and to transforming temporary states into permanent traits.

In this *Live* Day of Practice with Sangha Live guiding teacher Martin Aylward, we will go deeply into these twin aspects of transformation.

We’ll use Buddha’s two favourite epithets for the fruits of dharma practice – Awakening (Bodhi) and Freedom (Vimmuti) – to explore how insight and integration weave together into a truly liberating practice.

Join this session to learn practices exploring:

  • The fundamentally AWAKE nature of awareness
  • What we awaken TO, and what we get free FROM
  • The art of meditative integration

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.
