To begin this first session I will share about the value and purpose of meditation and true prayer; how they are an integral part of ACIM and our awakening journey. I will guide us into a meditation, where we will be in silence for 20 minutes.
Meditation is a way to heal and train our mind to go inward and be still. It is how we relinquish ego thoughts and strengthen our decision for God. True prayer is coming to God with holy empty hands, asking for nothing but to know truth; to remember oneness through our own direct experience.
To join together in this purpose is a Gift beyond measure… for ourselves and for All.
Preparing for the session
Let family and friends know that you will be in meditation and unavailable during this time.
Find a quiet and secluded area to sit. This would be a place where others won’t be walking by or distracting you. This not only minimizes distractions for you but for other participants who can see your video.
If you choose to have your camera on during the session, please stay seated, and ensure that your device / camera is on a steady surface. If you do need to get up and change your position, please turn your camera off until you are resettled.
Unless you’re using your phone to participate, ensure it is switched off.
Also ensure all call notifications and alerts are switched off on all devices during the session.
Please note, we do not have a Studio Team, or experienced tech support available at the Monastery! Please ensure your audio and video settings are functioning well prior to use. If tech support is needed, try these resources: https://zoom.us/ www.Google.com and www.YouTube.com

You will need to have a good internet connection. If you haven't used Zoom for some time, make sure you have the latest version. For optimal audio quality, use a pair of headphones or earbuds. When you click the Zoom link you will be prompted to either download or launch Zoom on your computer, tablet, or smartphone. You can test the Zoom link on your device prior to the meditation session.
When you open the link, a new window will open with the message "Please enter the meeting password". Enter the password. Now you will be redirected to another window that says "Waiting for the host to start this meeting." The host (the Monastery) will open the Zoom room 10 minutes prior to the session. Be sure to enter the room by 10am MST as the room will be locked shortly after that.
Once the Zoom room is open for participants, you will enter into our video meeting where we can see each other and interact. Make sure you select "use computer audio" if prompted. Next, scroll to the bottom of your Zoom screen and click on the “Start Video” icon. Once connected, you will be able to turn on your video, and raise a virtual hand if there is an invitation to speak.
If you have never participated in a Zoom gathering before, here is an instruction video explaining how to use some of the features.
Looking forward to seeing you on Monday and dropping in to our Heart's Desire together! Such joy! With Love,
