Online Practice Guidance

As in a meditation hall, please find a comfortable seated position so that you can remain still throughout.

Controls for microphone and video are bottom left of your Zoom window:

  • Please keep microphone muted except during group sharing.
  • Our main connection is visual, so please keep video on.
  • But if need to move, please turn video off so as not to distract others.

Unless on mobile, you can switch between gallery view and speaker view using the control in the top right or top left of your screen.

Please only send chat messages when essential.


Online practice is free to attend.

We ask for donations for teachers whenever one joins us as is usual in our tradition – if you can afford this. Please go to our donations page.
