Founder of MBSR and author of Full Catastrophe Living
Over years of teaching MBSR classes, Margaret and Rebecca have continually been asked this question by students—
"Is there a group I can connect with on a regular basis to help maintain and deepen my mindfulness practice?"
Rebecca started a weekly global online gathering during her time at the Center for Mindfulness precisely to address this need; both she and Margaret committed their Thursday mid-days to the online community that grew and flourished. Now the tradition continues at East Coast Mindfulness as the Worldwide Online Sit—a weekly gathering offered free of charge to all who have completed an MBSR or MBCT course, or who already have an established mindfulness practice.
Over the course of a 40-minute session, a teaching is offered, followed by meditation (the "sit," silent or guided) and optional group sharing. The Worldwide Sit also features occasional guest hosts with backgrounds in MBSR, mindfulness, or meditation.
The session is held every Thursday, 12:10 - 12:50PM US Eastern Time. Use the link below to register once for this free offering, after which you will be emailed a Zoom link so that you can participate. We’d love to have you every Thursday you’re able to be with us (and if you can't join us live, you can always watch videos of Weekly Worldwide Online Sit sessions on our Videos page).
Note: the passcode to enter the weekly Sit is always love.
Feel inspired to make an offering to support the Worldwide Sit?
Totally optional, and always appreciated!
