A Typical Session Flow
Join the meeting anytime within the 30 minutes before it starts. This will allow you to be with community and participate in a daily contemplation and conversation. Technical support is also available from a RIM host if needed.
Session Begins (5 minutes)
We begin with a short "drop-in" meditation to help settle the mind, open the heart, and become more present.
During meditation times, everyone's microphone is muted to minimize background noise.
Teachings & Instructions (10 minutes)
Each session offers traditional teachings and instructions related to deepening meditation practice, and living with greater mindfulness, wisdom, and compassion.
Guided Meditation (30 minutes)
An exploration into the session’s weekly topic — related to meditation practice and mindful living.
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 just to speak up (you can mute your microphone again if you like). When you speak, it can help to say your name so that we know who is talking.
