Day of Practice

Saturday, April 6th

Learning to Age, Learning to Be

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

Do you find ageing difficult?

“Ageing is stressful.” — Dhammacakkappavattana Sutta – SN 56.11

As we age, our thoughts become less preoccupied with possible futures – a freedom which invites us to bring more attention and focus to the present moment.

But at the same time, ageing can give rise to fear and anxiety.

An important part of life seems to be behind us. And in growing old, all aspects life slowly require physical and psychological adaptation.

As the body slowly becomes more fragile, this experience invites us to question our priorities about what is essential and what is no longer serving us.

In this Day of Practice led by Dharma teacher and hospice-worker Sophie Boyer, we will explore what is constructed around this reality, and how we can develop discernment to face ageing with a more open and embracing heart.

Together we will rediscover what may have been forgotten along the way: getting old may be stressful, but ageing also offers a wonderful opportunity to awaken to what it means to be fully human.

Join this session to learn to:

  • Inquire about assumptions, beliefs, the sense of self that is built around the reality of ageing.
  • Bring clarity towards the fear that often come with loss, illness, isolation, death.
  • Deepen an understanding of the natural law of change in order to strengthen ease and confidence.

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.
