    Pretty embarrassed to say meditation remains a big NO PLEASE NOOOO.. for me.
    Think I find it a bit difficult. And a bit boring. A lot.
    Yet as formal sitting meditation is one sure way out of samsara I ought to do something about this.
    Looking for fellow BPeers to meditate with, following schedule set by Geshe-la.
    30min max per session, 2 sessions max per week.
    Get in touch if interested – thank you!

    Hi Laura,

    I’d be up for that. Been struggling keeping up with the meditations from the start of the module!

    Great! Thank you Katrin and Diana 🙂
    Now just a matter of finding suitable days/times.

    Good ones for me would be (in UK time):
    – Monday AM
    – Weds AM
    – Friday after 7:00PM
    – Sun 9:00AM
    Any of these work for you?

    Thank you both for getting in touch
    – and thank you Maya for your texts!

    Take good care,
    Laura

    Any of those times would work for me.

    Would Monday AM, before or after the Morning prayers, work for everyone? (7:55am- 8:25am or 9am-9:30am?) I’ve been very lax about attending those lately, so it would help me get to those too.

    How does that sound, Laura? Do you have a preference for earlier or later?

    I’m happy to open up a Zoom session before or after Morning Prayers on Monday and post the link here.

    I’m not capable of leading a mediation beyond putting up a slide with the topic on it and ringing a bell at the end, but if anyone would like to lead a meditation, that would be great. And if I’m on my own… that’s okay too. No pressure.
