'Practicing Together'
Sessions

Overview

Meditation is like exercise for the heart and mind. It’s good to have a steady meditation practice. These practice sessions help us connect to the precious moments that make up our life — helping us live with greater wisdom, compassion, well-being, and freedom.

What to Expect

During each session, we will meditate together, focusing on a specific technique to strengthen our practice. We will also explore teachings that draw on traditional wisdom and modern science — to deepen our meditation practice and live with greater mindfulness.

A Typical Session Flow

  1. Pre-Session (please arrive at least 5 minutes early)
    Join the meeting anytime within the 30 minutes before it starts. This will allow you an opportunity to be with community, familiarize yourself with this virtual space, and get technical support from a RIM host.
  2. Session Begins (5 minutes)
    We begin with a short "drop-in" to help settle the mind, open the heart, and become more present. (During this time, we'll mute everyone's microphone to minimize background noise).
  3. Teachings & Instructions (10 minutes)
    Each session offers traditional teachings and instructions related to deepening meditation practice, and living with greater mindfulness, wisdom, and compassion. (Everyone’s microphones will automatically stay muted during this part as well).
  4. Guided Meditation (30 minutes)
    An exploration into the session’s weekly topic — related to meditation practice and mindful living. (Everyone’s microphones will still be muted).
  5. Questions & Dialogue (10 minutes)
    The teacher will open the session up for questions and comments anyone may have about the meditation experience or the session's teachings. We will unmute everyone’s microphones during this time, so feel free to just speak up (you can mute your microphone again if you like). When you speak, it can help to say your name just so we know who is talking.
  6. Goodbyes :)
