Living with Change

with Ulla Koenig

8-11am PT / 11am-2pm ET / 3-6pm GMT / 4-7pm CET

Learn how to open to change, and embrace it with open arms

Change is literally everywhere!

The Buddha repeatedly and consistently emphasized this fundamental truth – and the importance of being aware and awakening to the changing nature of all things.

But the question is – how do we do this in a way that is fruitful and beneficial?

While it might be quite easy to see, change can be hard to accommodate. Change often goes along with feelings of resistance, fear or an urge to ignore as much as we can.

Resilience usually does not emerge from a harsh confrontation with the truth of things, but develops from a compassionate, gradual process of waking up to it.

The more we are rooted in supportive resources, the easier it will be to meet change – welcomed or unwelcomed – with wisdom, dignity and grace.

In this Day of Practice, Vipassana teacher Ulla Koenig will offer guided meditations and practices which will nourish the inner resources which help us to meet change in our everyday lives.

Join this live 3-hour session to learn how to:

  • Practice with important qualities which help you to flow with the minor and major changes in your life, like compassion, healthy ways of grieving and equanimity (rather than indifference)
  • Understand your reactivity towards change, feelings like fear or irritation, and how they might be linked to unhelpful self-images, narratives and perspectives
  • Appreciate and further strengthen the resources you already have to build confidence in your ability to meet change with dignity, grace and a sense of calm and clarity

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.
