During these uncertain and challenging times, David has moved the weekly Tuesday night meditation group online using the Zoom group video app. The schedule will remain as it has been, with the introductory remarks and meditation starting at 7:00 PM, and talk or discussion starting at 8:00 PM.
In order to participate, you will need to download the Zoom app, which is free for participants. Zoom is available on many devices and the download links can be found here: https://zoom.us/download
Enter the meeting room using the link or code: https://zoom.us/j/7656871211 | Meeting ID: 765 687 1211
Once there, you will be prompted to set up your audio, microphone, and camera (depending on your device). It may be silent initially as the other attendees will be muted until David begins the meeting. We encourage you to turn on your camera if you're comfortable doing so during the talk or discussion, so David can see and interact with the attendees. If the meeting includes a discussion, you can click "Participants" and then "Raise Hand" to indicate you'd like to participate. Once it is your turn, you will be prompted by the host to un-mute so you can speak.
If you need technical assistance setting up Zoom, please contact David prior to the Tuesday night meeting.
There is no cost for attending these meetings. We offer them in the spirit of dana, which in Buddhist teachings is translated as “generosity freely given.” A donation is not required, and there’s no suggested amount. Guidelines for the practice of dana are to choose a contribution that gives rise to a warm, joyful feeling in your heart and to make an offering that feels appropriate in relation to your personal financial situation.
The donations we receive for Tuesday night gatherings will be used in two ways: Half will be given to the speaker to support their work and half will be given to the Tuesday night sangha of the Insight Meditation Community of Colorado to support activities of the community. Donations of any size will be sincerely appreciated and put to good use in service to the sharing of Buddhist teachings and our collective well-being.
In keeping with this tradition, we invite financial donations from those of you who would like to support our practice community.
Donate with the buttons below via PayPal or credit/debit card. You must include the memo/note "Online Sangha."
