Daily Sit

This post is a reminder that Daily Sit invites you to practice meditation with a live online community tomorrow morning. Inspired by "Sitting Project," a daily meditation piece, Kim Brown and I thought it would be supportive to the community to offer an online interactive presence for meditation. If you would like to share a peek at your experience or a simple notation that you sat, please do so in the "comments" section.

Each week there will be an opportunity for anyone who wants to participate online in a community sit. Join me and others on Saturday, March 30, at 9 a.m. EST for a 30-minute sit from your home or wherever you are. Please find instructions for Metta practice below. I will do my best to make this the regular time for the community sit. You can add me as a friend on Insight Timer or add yourself to the group "Daily Sit IDP" on Insight Timer. Our "Daily Sit IDP" community is growing. Come early and stay late if you like.

How to add a friend on Insight Timer

The app is not necessary to participate with the community meditation and this blog. If you can't make 9 a.m. join in whenever you can and stay as long as you like. I can be found by my name on Facebook and Twitter. Anyone in the community is welcome to friend and connect with others who want to log in during Daily Sit. You can comment on Insight Timer. It's a good feeling knowing you have friends out there thinking of you as you are of them.

If you are already working with a technique, then continue. If you are new to meditation, I encourage attending classes for instruction and foundational teachings.

Metta, loving kindness, is wonderful practice any time. For me, there's something about Saturday mornings with others out there practicing together adds to the merit of practice. You can learn how to do Metta Meditation at home by listening to a guided meditation session by Ethan Nichtern available here.

Please seek help and guidance if the going gets rough.

You are not alone.

This blog post is to encourage daily meditation practice, journaling, healing and connecting.
