Regular meditation is the foundation of a strong spiritual practice.
We offer online meditations 5+ times a week with our small but dedicated community. Our Meditation Groundwork program allows you to sign up monthly and attend as many or as few live sits as you can.
How it Works
We like to meet everyone at one of our open meditation sessions first, before we invite them to join our regular meditation sessions. You’re welcome if you’ve never meditated before, or if you have experience and just want to meditate with others or feel supported by our structure.
The easiest way is to sign up to our mailing list. From there you’ll get direct invitations to our open sessions (no registration required). These happen one or two evenings a month and some lunchtimes. You’re also welcome to sign up and just attend our open sessions – there’s no pressure to join the program.
Testimonial for Meditation Groundwork
“I am so grateful to have found Dharma Hub’s online sits. I was surprised at how quickly the gatherings started to feel like a community. Being able to count on the familiar and welcoming faces of Andy and Maryline several times a week has helped me be more consistent and has deepened my mindfulness practice.”Ari, Subscriber since Nov 2020
Regular Meditation Sessions Each Month
After you’ve attended an open sit and chatted with one of us about the program, you can sign up at any time to join our regular sessions. It’s done on a sliding scale by dana (pay from the heart) and you can join as many or as few sits as you like through the month. We currently meditate live on 4 weekdays (20 minutes each) and on Sunday evenings (40 minutes for a longer experience). Our intention is to provide a framework for a strong regular practice, supporting you to practice more by yourself as well as with the group.
Meditation Groundwork is a monthly subscription by pay-from-the-heart or “dana”, so you consciously choose to renew your personal commitment and intention each month.
Who is Meditation Groundwork for?

- has meditated, and needs support in order to make it part of a regular healthy lifestyle.
Part of you knows that dedicating time to stop and breathe mindfully is important. It’s hard to make it happen alone! We know that from experience! Whatever good intentions, the reality is that all is set up for you to be drawn back into habits and busyness. It takes a good amount of effort to disroot this habit of thinking about everything, everywhere, all the time! It is just what we know. What we are used to.
You may have recognized that this approach to life is not fulfilling. That somewhat, whatever you do, you always fall back into some sort of anxiety, dissatisfaction or pain.
Ultimately, you know that true peace is found inwards. All you need is dedicated time and effort to train yourself into being present with this moment, just as it is, without needing to do much about it.
This group practice will help you develop the muscle of concentrating the mind on something truly wonderful and anchoring, your very own breath.
These sessions are meant to provide the structure needed in order to make progress on your personal growth journey.
-Weekly structured group sits
-Increased knowledge of the practice of breathing meditation
-Guidance from practitioners with a combined 25+ years of meditation experience
-Practice with a community of dedicated practitioners
-Access to supplementary classes and a wider community to go deeper
Your Guides for Meditation Groundwork
“I tried many years to meditate by myself without gaining much momentum and it’s really when I started to practice with others that I gave myself the gift of healthy habits.”
“Finding groups to connect with and making small commitments, and then larger ones, has ensured my practice stuck through the years. This is one reason I love offering this program, to pay forward all the teachings, support, and inspiration I’ve received over the years. Plus, committing to offering this program week in and week out supports my own practice.”
