Weekly Practice

Having an ongoing group to sit with can give strength and energy to our personal meditation practice – and help cultivate community! These weekly or bi-weekly groups are facilitated by a SIMS teacher or leader. To read more about these groups or to see upcoming topics, view the list of upcoming weekly practice sessions.
