Online People of Color Sangha: Contemplation of the Dharma and Buddhism Within our Lives
 
with Wildecy de Fátima Jury
 
Monday, October 5th, 2020 | 7:00pm-9:00pm ET

There are many ways to meditate and practice as there are many ways to explore the vastness of the dharma. Through sitting, inquiring, reading and studying Buddhist teachings and having some actions we can maintain our practice, enhance our concentration and deepen our relationship with joy and equanimity.

In this People of Color Sangha meeting led by teacher Wildecy de Fátima Jury, we will together examine various ways that will support our practice and our Buddhist studies, and a few steps on how to experience the profound spaciousness and depth of the dharma.

This sitting group provides instruction in insight meditation and fosters mutual support and understanding among the growing community of people of color who find nourishment and inspiration in the practice of meditation.

No previous meditation experience is required.
