What we're about

Everything we do, we believe that anyone can reach their fullest potential. And that the collective actualization of such from each of us can transform into greater goodness for our society.

We are actualizing this through our educational programs (https://www.dropbox.com/s/hay2du5wqyy1x10/A%20bit%20about%20our%20programs.pdf?dl=0) of the Chan (https://www.ddmbasf.org/theeffects) (Chinese Zen) teachings and practice, taking each person by their hands, progressing at their own pace, integrating into their daily life, and “sharing the good stuff” with others, week after week, year after year.

Our programs (https://www.dropbox.com/s/hay2du5wqyy1x10/A%20bit%20about%20our%20programs.pdf?dl=0) are simple to learn and the practices are easy to apply in day to day scenarios.

Sunday Online Meditation Group Session Led by Ven. Guo Yuan

Sundays
11 am – 1 pm PT / 2 – 4 pm ET
Come! Come practice and learn together with us - online, while building camaraderie, diligence and having fun. Explore the journey of self-mastery through Chan Meditation.

The online session includes guided moving and seated meditation, Dharma talk*, Q&A or group discussion*, at the discretion of the Teacher. In the event of Abbot's unavailability (at times), he encourages us to continue the session to deepen our practice -together- and to further our faith in the practice, in this powerful continuum of group setting, with practitioners from around the world.

Agenda (subject to change):

  • Moving meditation (guided, ~30 minutes)
  • Seated meditation (guided, ~30 minutes)
  • Dharma Talk (live, or video*, ~15-30 minutes)
  • Q&A or group discussion/sharing* (~20-30 minutes)
  • For session that the Abbot is unavailabe, Dharma talk (via video) and group discussion will take place

Please allow enough space in the comfort of your own home/space for moving meditation. For seated meditation, a sturdy/comfortable chair where the thighs can be leveled with the body would be good, although meditation cushions/bench would be best if you have them.
Please register below to attend the Zoom meeting. We will also broadcast live on our Facebook page.

These sessions are for everyone:

Why practice in a group setting?

  • To be good at anything, we need to practice. And practice regularly.
  • The best way to learn and practice meditation is in a group setting.
  • In a group setting, we can assist one another and benefit from each other’s experience and wisdom.
  • The synergy of the group process also accelerates learning and deepens our meditation practices.
  • To that effect, these sessions are being iterative-ly refined for the explorers, beginners and experienced practitioners who could benefit from this supportive mechanism.
