A Typical Session Flow
Meetings open 10 minutes before the session starts to allow you to settle in and be with the community. Technical support is also available from a RIM host if needed.
Opening Bells & Meditation (10 minutes)
We begin with a short "drop-in" meditation to help relax the body, settle the mind, open the heart, and become more present. During meditation time, everyone's microphone is muted to minimize background noise.
Teachings & Instructions (10 minutes)
Each session offers traditional teachings and instructions related to developing a skillful meditation and mindful living practice.
Guided Meditation (25 minutes)
The guided meditation supports insight and integration of the session's teachings and instructions.
Optional Questions & Dialogue Time (15 minutes)
After the meditation, the teacher will open the session for questions and comments anyone may have related to the meditation experience and the session's teachings. We invite everyone at RIM to practice Mindful Communication →.
