Day of Practice

Saturday, October 15th

Facets of Transformation:
Waking Up, Growing Up and Showing Up

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

There’s more to awakening than just meditation!

Spiritual transformation (waking up) and psychological maturation (growing up) can sometimes run along quite separate tracks. Yet, an authentically integrated path is one that necessarily weaves together both threads, along with the additional element of how we apply our understanding to our participation in the world (showing up).

This Day of Practice will integrate these three elements. We will look together at the pitfalls of relying on only one – whether through the ’spiritual bypassing’ that can flavour waking up, the endless self-improvement project of psychological growing up, or the blame, anger and aggression that can flavour showing up without doing the inner work.

During this 3-hour program with Sangha Live founding teacher, Martin Aylward, through meditation and inquiry practice, we will reflect on our personal pitfalls, and learn to integrate the spiritual, psychological and social dimensions of awakening.

This program will help you to explore:

  • The most essential elements of waking up, growing up and showing up
  • Which of these threads are needing your particular attention
  • Practices to support a radically transformative, integrated path

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.
