7:15 pm - 9:30 pm
We are an English speaking group of established meditators who meet every week to listen to dharma talks, learn from established teachers, take part in formal silent self-practice, as well as to share and discuss our direct experiences. We are here to support one another in maintaining the practice, whether you are just beginning or have been to dozens of retreats.
We welcome meditators who already have an established practice, as well as beginners who are new to meditation. If you have never practiced on your own before. Please refer to the website for the related notes.
In line with HKIMS’s objectives, this group’s primary focus is on practices and teachings relating to Vipassana (Insight) Buddhist Meditation. We welcome practitioners inspired by all Buddhist traditions, as well as non-Buddhists.
Structure and guidelines
We start at 7:15pm on Monday evenings so ask anyone who wishes to join, especially if it is your first time, to make every effort to be on time. This enables us to have some time to do introductions and to better support each other through the session.
Please could you also update your Zoom screen name to your actual name or whatever name we can call you (instead for example “Galaxy Tablet” or “iPhone 6”). Also, please enable your camera and prepared to briefly introduce yourself and say hello at the beginning. By doing both of these things, we can maintain a supportive and interactive environment for the benefit of all.
The typical schedule we follow is:-
7:15pm Orientation for newcomers and beginners
7:30pm Listen to recorded Dharma talk, or to HKIMS teacher (attending once per month)
8:15pm Silent practice
9:00pm Open sharing and discussion
