Day of Practice

7-10am PDT / 10am-1pm EDT / 3-6pm BST / 4-7pm CEST

Theme – Always Awake, Already Free: Exploring Effortless Awareness

Join our guiding teacher, Martin Aylward, and our global sangha, as we turn inwards and investigate the immediate, natural, brilliant radiance of mind.

We can firstly taste, and increasingly trust, the luminosity of awareness in which all experience is effortlessly reflected.

During this intensive 3-hour Day of Practice, Martin will provide rich Dharma teachings and valuable practices to help us understand more deeply what the traditions call Primordial Awareness… the Ground of Being… the ‘natural state’ or ‘awareness of awareness’!

Together, we’ll get a little more comfortable with resting in the ‘already here’ quality, as the basis for all experience.

What is Day of Practice?

Speak Like You Are Already Free

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.

How is Day of Practice different from Sangha Live’s Daily/Sunday classes?

Day Of Practice

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 do I prepare?

You will need a computer, phone or tablet with a supported browser/app in order to join us: Chrome, Firefox, Opera, the Android browser, or the Crowdcast app for iPhones.

You will want to prepare a space to sit comfortably and quietly for the 3-hour duration. During meditation, you will be encouraged to sit up straight or lie down flat for extended periods. Please make yourself comfortable with supportive props such as cushions, pillows, chairs, or yoga mats. 

You may want to keep a glass of water or cup of tea nearby. There will be breaks for bio needs.

I can’t attend live. Will I be able to watch the recording later?

Yes, everyone who registers will receive indefinite access to the recording to watch in their own time.


Day of Practice is offered on a sliding scale basis, with a suggested rate of $35, in order to cover Sangha Live administrative costs. There will be opportunity to provide dana/generosity during the event.

Your generosity supports the teacher and their transmission of the Dharma, as well as our meditators with fewer means.
