Online Work Practice in Sangha

Join fellow practitioners for a new offering: Online work practice in sangha.  Hosted by the resident volunteers at IRC, online work practice half-days feature time for 2 unguided sits with one another, along with a work period for “yogi jobs” between them.  The work period offers time to practice mindfulness while caring for our living spaces, gardening, cooking, or working on whatever project each practitioner chooses to do. (For those registered for the retreat that begins in the day(s) following a work day, this may include preparing your space for your week of formal practice.) There are also opportunities to reflect on your practice with other participants and socialize with new and familiar dharma friends.

Upcoming online work days will be held on the following Saturdays: Feb. 27, March 27, April 24, and May 15 from 9:00 until noon.  If you would like to join us, please RSVP here. We will send you the Zoom link the Friday before the Online Work Day.
