Blooming Lotus Sangha Online
w/ George Farmer
Every Thursday, 7:30 – 8:00 am
Waking up this morning I smile.
24 brand new hours are before me.
I vow to live them fully
And look on all beings with the eyes of compassion.
Blooming Lotus Sangha invites you to join us for morning meditation.
Many have been turning more and more to starting their day with meditation practice for support, comfort, and direction during this challenging time. We are very happy to begin sharing a morning meditation with you.
We meet for 30 minutes of silent meditation each Thursday morning from 7:30 to 8:00 MDST, beginning April 23.
If you would like to join in, click the Zoom link below, arriving a few minutes early so you can be settled on your cushion or chair when the bell is invited at 7:30. Most gatherings we’ll simply sit together and enjoy the silence. Other Thursdays we may offer some chanting, guided meditations. or a short Dharma talk or a gatha for the day. Whatever happens, you are free to join us whenever you choose without being present at every session.
You are welcome to share this invitation with others but please don’t post the Zoom link on social media or make it publicly available. We hope to maintain a balance between welcoming all and discouraging abuse.
