Nyinthün: Sunday Morning Meditation

Online and in person Sundays, from 10AM till 12:00 PM.
See the schedule here.
No registration needed for online practice. Please join online practice through Zoom URL:

Nyinthün is a weekly group practice of sitting and walking meditation held every Sunday morning. The practice begins and ends with a short set of traditional group chants and includes a dharma reading and a practice of compassion for those who have instruction in Tonglen.

A meditation instructor is available to offer guidance upon request and short personal meetings to answer questions for both new and experienced meditators.

The power of group meditation
The group practice of Nyinthün is one of the most beneficial ways of deepening and extending our meditation. We are supported and carried by the group energy which creates a powerful atmosphere of practice. This energy inspires our own practice further than short daily sessions alone. By participating in weekly Nyinthün practice we can strengthen and deepen our personal meditation practice which in turn gives momentum to maintaining a regular sitting routine.

Nyinthün is best experienced in its entirety, but people are free to arrive and leave at anytime. There is no registration required and we welcome people of all practice levels.  When the new moon coincides, participants are led in the chanting of a vivid, powerful group practice called ‘The Sadhana of Mahamudra’ written by the Venerable Chogyam Trungpa Rinpoche (founder of the Shambhala tradition).

Registration is not required to participate online.
