Sunday Morning Practice

Virtual Sangha


Each Sunday morning at 9:00am CT we meet online via Zoom for a 20 minute guided mediation and discussion. Sessions are loosely themed by month to coincide with specific Dharma teachings or meditation instructions.

The Blessed One said, “Little thoughts, subtle thoughts, when followed, stir up the heart. Not comprehending the thoughts of the heart, one runs here & there, the mind out of control. But comprehending the thoughts of the heart, one who is ardent, mindful, restrains them. When, followed, they stir up the heart, one awakened lets them go without trace.”
