At the request of a healthcare worker in Germany, we have started an online meditation and discussion group using Zoom conferencing. In first instance only for Europe, where many people are in lockdown. I feel privileged to have the opportunity to support him and others in this way.
We have started with two existing groups: one WhatsApp group and a Rainbow group in Germany that can no longer meet in person.
Now many countries in Europe have gone into lockdown and others have put stringent regulations into place to slow the spread of the Covid-19 virus, we need connection more than ever. We need to put the Buddha’s teachings into force and help each other to deal with the stress and uncertainty, support each other by doing kind deeds for those in our society who are vulnerable and to give mental support to those who need it.
It is in times like these that we can grow most in the Dhamma and practice the 8-fold noble path. When we are stuck at home, we can make the time for meditation, to listen to Dhamma teachings and join together with spiritual friends online.
Therefore, we will be offering a weekly meditation and Dhamma discussion group on Zoom, starting Friday 20th from 20.00-22.00 CEST.

Looking forward to seeing you there!
For people who speak German, there is also the Suttanta group that meets from 10-12 am CEST on Sundays. More information: iSangha - Buddhismus Hamburg
