Our Year of Going Deeper

A year of going deeperJoin us for a series of free meditation events throughout 2014. We’re calling this our Year of Going Deeper.

It includes events for all levels of practice, whether you’re a beginner interested in learning basic techniques or a more experienced meditator interested in cultivating deep meditative states and insight. You’re free to pick and choose which events you participate in.

  • Registration for these events is free, although donations are encouraged.
  • When you register for an event, you’re signing up for a daily practice reminder that will be delivered by email.
  • The newsletter will contain practice suggestions and links to guided meditations.
  • There will also be some “live” events that you can watch on video, or watch recordings of later.
  • For each event there will be an online community where you can share your experience and receive support and encouragement.
