Awakening, Teachings, & Community
A Three-Part Series
Tuesdays: November 21st, November 28th, and December 5th
6:00PM – 8:30PM
This 3-part online retreat will include ample time for meditation and periods of restful silence as well as dharma talks and discussion focused on awakening, teachings and community. Attending the whole series is recommended, with drop-ins for single classes also available.
Buddha (awakening), Dharma (teachings), and the Sangha (community), together form the refuge of living Buddhism. How do we bring these ancient teachings to life with meaningful expression? Our steady practice of meditation cultivates the realization of present awareness. In the midst of everyday activity, supported by our connections, we can take refuge in the three jewels of a shining practice, refining our ability to face the challenges of this precious life with open hearts and open minds.

On Sunday afternoons Long Beach Meditation offers meditation practice and a Dharma Talk by one of our established Teachers and on special occasions invited guests. This class invites participants to find support, guidance, and the energy to do the challenging work of awakening. After a welcoming introduction, the bell is rung to begin our 30-minute meditation. There is a short break to stretch our legs, use the restroom, have a cup of tea, and chat with others. Returning to our seats, the remaining time allows for a Dharma Talk followed by discussion and questions and answers. We concluded with a brief metta chant for those who would like to join:
May all beings be happy and safe from harm.
May all beings be healthy in body and in mind.
May all beings be peaceful and free from suffering.
This class is suitable for all levels of experience and is held both in person and online. All are welcome and no one is turned away for lack of funds.
Immediately following class will be LBM’s Sangha Celebration. Please RSVP.
