Full English Details can be found below Chinese text.
During this difficult pandemic time of increasing global uncertainty and stress, HKIMS would like to invite you to join our daily morning and evening online chanting and silent meditation sessions as a resource for us to navigate our days with more awareness and wholesome intention.
Every morning from 8am to 9am, and every evening (starting Monday 11th May 2020) from 10pm to 10:30pm we will meet online via Zoom and start with a short period (~15-20 min) of chanting covering texts and teachings from the Pali Canon under Theravadan tradition, starting from the basics.
We will offer the opportunities to chant in Pali, Chinese and English, followed by a period of meditation together in silence (personal practice without instructions). You are welcome to sit for as long as you are able to and leave our Zoom meeting quietly as and when you wish.
Guidelines For Online Zoom Meetings
We offer these sessions to provide a space for experienced meditators and beginners to support one another through active participation and sharing. In order to facilitate this, we ask all attendees to adhere to the following guidelines:-
Attend 10mins before the session starts, especially if you are new to the group and / or a beginner - this enables the facilitators to give some orientation and introduction before the session commences formally at 8:00am and 10pm
Enable your device camera - this is particularly important if you are relatively new to the group so that we can support and get to know one another better
Update your screen name, so that people know how to refer to you
Attend from an environment that is as peaceful and quiet as possible - this is beneficial both to your practice and experience of the session, as it is for other participants
To help enable an open and safe practice environment for all, the host will ensure: Recording functions within the Zoom platform are disabled for all participants.
