We usually meet about every other week on Saturday evenings to practice together – either in person (indoors or outdoors) or online (via Zoom), depending on the availability of the room and the organisers, as well as the weather conditions.
Each evening is a little different, but all are based on a few key elements that are (almost) always part of the session. These are:
–> grounding + check in + singing.
–> guided and/or silent sitting
–> walking meditation or mindful movements
–> Dharma sharing
It is also possible that we read a text together, listen to a short Dharma talk, enjoy a deep relaxation, recite the five mindfulness trainings, …
After the in-person sessions, people often like to stay together for a little while in a more informal setting.
In addition to the Saturday evenings, there might also be some Sangha-in-the-Park meetings in the summer, events by/with different Sanghas in Berlin that we participate in as a group, and whatever else we can think of more or less spontaneously. All regular Sangha meetings and events that are planned a little in advance appear in the calendar. Short-term changes planned on the spot might only make it to our social media groups.
