During your turn as host, please:

  1. Arrive promptly at (or before) the scheduled beginning of the meeting and greet the meditators as they arrive.
  2. Wait 3-5 minutes for latecomers as those attending arrive, and greet those arriving with small talk until you begin.
  3. By five minutes past the scheduled beginning of the sit, announce that we will begin and mark the beginning of the timed period with one bell.
  4. Sit silently for 25 minutes, then mark the end of the period with one bell.
  5. Engage those present with positive conversation and gracefully facilitate goodbyes, or if you are hosting Saturday, facilitate goodbyes and greetings for those arriving for the second sit, and repeat steps 2-5.


Saturday discussions

We will hold a practice discussion after the second sit on Saturday, July 11, for those who are interested in an informal sharing session about personal meditation practice.

This month’s book discussion will take place after the second sit on Saturday, July 25. Nat Brown will lead us in a discussion of The Patterning Instinct by Jeremy Lent. Check out the author’s website here.
