Bridging the Physical Distancing Divide
A Daily Guided Meditation from BCBS with Bill and Susan Morgan
Join us daily from 10:30-11:15 EDT for a facilitated virtual sangha sitting
Although BCBS is temporarily closed, we are blessed to be here for the next several weeks 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 day, let's come together virtually to bridge the physical distancing divide. We will offer a few words of encouragement and instruction at the beginning of each sitting.
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.
