Stroke Practice

November 23rd

Date details +
    Room: Online Program

     

    This practice event is restricted to people who have received Stroke Transmission at Warrior Assembly or another program. 

    This guided practice will include a period of sitting meditation, a reading or talk, and a discussion.  

    Stroke practice is a powerful tool for raising lungta, which seems very helpful in these dark and difficult times. Many of us have appreciated the practice when we received it, but have moved away from practicing it at home. These online sessions are intended to help us reconnect with this practice through guided sessions, study, and the companionship of fellow warriors.

    The sessions will be held twice a month, on the fourth Monday night of the month from 7 to 8:30 PM and on the second Wednesday morning of the month from 10 to 11:30 AM. 

    Please come prepared with your Stroke Practice materials and a way to see the screen (or at least hear the audio) during practice.

    Cost
    There is no cost to attend this practice session and donations are always appreciated.

    What is the Patron Price?
    The other aspect of our Generosity Policy is our Patron Price. Those who are able to offer more than the regular program price can select the Patron Price option.  By selecting this option, your generosity is helping to cover the costs of those who may not be able to pay the full price of the program.
