  • LBM Sunday Dharma

    3:00 pm - 4:30 pm, Sunday July 14, 2024
    Online or In-Person! Presented by Long Beach Meditation

    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.
