In response to our world-wide COVID-19 pandemic & the unusual isolated way that most of us are currently living, I & The Mountain Hermitage invite you & anyone else you know who may be interested to join us for a period of on-line meditation on Sunday, beginning Sunday April 5th & ongoing each Sunday through June, 2020. We will begin at 9:30 a.m. Mountain Day Light Saving Time…please find the corresponding time where you are currently living.
You are very welcome to join us every Sunday or on any Sunday that you are able to. This is a time to begin a meditation practice, to renew your practice, and a time to help sustain your practice during this challenging stretch. As we pause, sit & take a mindful breath together, we are creating the opportunity for each of us to open our heart & mind to the timeless presence of mindful, compassionate, loving awareness as we move towards responding to this difficult time w/a deepening sense of interconnection, loving awareness, compassion, courage, clarity & steadiness, even as we compassionately acknowledge our own feelings of fear & uncertainty. We can begin to realize that “For now, I’m truly ok”.
At the beginning of each meditation session I will offer guidance in the form of clear instructions. We will sit together for 40 minutes. I will then offer a short Dharma reflection followed by some time for any of you to share a brief check-in with all of us. We will close our Sunday meditation time each week at 10:45 a.m. Mountain Day Light Saving Time. Please join us ON TIME for these meditations. The ‘virtual door’ will be closed very soon after we begin each week.
I look forward to your presence with us as we ‘sit’ together, sharing this special, supportive & openhearted time each Sunday.
With love, Marcia
