Some information about how it will work
Once you have registered you will receive a confirmation email. Closer to the day, you will also receive a final timetable (in PDF format) with active links to join the various meetings on offer and some more detailed information.
All the meditations in the “Digital Meditation Hall” are optional, they will help with motivation, and accountability and they will also provide a sense of community, despite joining in from your homes. Participants will be able to sit together in a virtual space of silence across different locations and time zones. Please feel free to meditate by yourself without a screen in front of you and for a period of time suitable to your circumstances and disposition.
The “Group Interview” sessions are also optional. They will be limited to a smaller group of devices/people, to keep them more personal.
A Q&A session for all participants will be conducted on Saturday evening. You will be able to ask questions via a Google Form or via the Zoom chat function during the actual event.
Please only join if you have used Zoom before and are experienced. We will not be able to offer tech support prior or during the event, as it is run by the monastics themselves. Thank you for your understanding.
If you are from a different time zone and cannot attend all the sessions, no problem. We have enough capacity for many participants this time.
