Dear Troy Shambhala,
Out of an abundance of caution regarding the coronavirus, we are suspending in-person sitting at our physical location at Sage Colleges (no sitting on Mar. 12.) As precious as it is to meet and practice together in our little space, there is too much unknown about the spread of the virus to continue blindly. Until we have a clearer picture of the ongoing risk, we feel that it is best to suspend and seek other ways to meet.
We are planning to set up online meeting using the Zoom meeting platform. This is a surprisingly good way to practice together, and we regularly use it in the Shambhala community. Our first online session will happen on Thursday, March 19 (every Thursday evening 6:30-7:30 pm until further notice.) If you would like to join us, please RSVP to this email: [email protected] and you will be provided a link with instructions.
We would like to hear your thoughts on this, and anything else. Meeting online could open opportunities to deepen our practice with multiple sessions a week, separate study groups, book groups, or special practice sessions. We hope that when we return to normalcy, we’ll have gained a valuable resource.
