Although BCBS is temporarily closed, we are blessed to be here during the shutdown and would like to offer a live half-hour meditation from the dharma hall to support your well-being and your practice.
From 10:30-11:15 EDT each weekday, let's come together virtually to bridge the physical distancing divide. There will be a specific dharma theme addressed throughout each week. On Wednesday and Friday, there will be a Q&A for the last 15 minutes. Weekends will be a silent half-hour sit.
There will be space for all who wish to attend the daily sit.
Our sessions will be recorded and posted below if you cannot join us live. Together we will get through this.
Recordings from previous sessions can be found at the bottom of this page. Recordings will remain posted for one week.

The loud noise heard in the recordings is the meditation hall settling as it heats and cools.
