Practice Meditation on Zoom with an Abbey-Related Dharma Community

It can be a challenge to keep motivated as someone new to the Dharma, or even as an experienced practitioner. That’s where Dharma friends come in! Join a group for your morning meditation and follow the practices done at the Abbey.

The group is lead by friends of the Abbey, some of whom have been meditating together everyday online for years. All levels of experience are welcome. We’re friendly!

The normal schedule for the Lay Practitioner’s Practice Group (LPPG) is:

  • Sunday – Friday mornings – at 5:30 AM Pacific (6:30 a.m. MST)
  • Saturday morning – at 5:30 AM Pacific (Abbey Monastic leads the practice)
  • Evening practice
    • Monday evenings at 7:00 p.m. MST
    • Tuesday evenings at 7:00 p.m. MST
    • Wednesday evenings at 7:00 p.m. MST
    • Thursday evenings at 7:00 p.m. MST
    • Saturday evenings at 7:00 p.m. MST

Changes to the schedule: On full and new moon days the group meets at 6:00 a.m. (MST) to take the 8 Mahayana Precepts together.

During Retreat from Afar the practice from the retreat is led.

When the Abbey is holding a retreat (see events for schedule), the group facilitates meditation on the Zoom link sent for the online retreat.

Practice Structure

We follow the structure of the Abbey’s morning meditation:

  • Set daily motivations & motivation specific to day’s practice
  • Bow and greet one another virtually
  • Morning mantra recitations
  • 21 Shakyamuni Buddha recitations for the Buddha Hall
  • 35 Buddhas (Option to leave & dedicate on one’s own, if needed)
  • Lamrim practice within the context of rotating sadhanas (leader’s choice)
