About this Offering

The Everyday Caring Covid-19 Support Group is an online offering for regular Bay Area EDZ practitioners during this time of the Covid-19 pandemic. Together, we'll use the group to help keep our sangha and connections strong during the uncertainty of these times.

This Dharma Support Group will be offered weekly on Mondays on a drop-in basis using the online platform Zoom (more info below). It will be facilitated by Chris Fortin, Jaune Evans, James Flaherty, and Andrea Jacoby.

Follow the link below to join us. The Zoom meeting room will be open at 3:45 p.m. Please arrive early so you'll be able to join the group meditation promptly at 4:00 p.m. Pacific Time.

We will sit together, there will be a small dharma refection and encouragement, and time to check in and share our lives, concerns, and practice with each other.
