In this moment of difficulty in which we find ourselves, unimaginable even a month ago, our lives have been turned upside down. We are faced with a growing global problem, and in our personal lives, the obligation to remain at home has curtailed our basic freedom of movement.
As practitioners of Vipassana and Metta we would like to turn this period to our advantage by developing human qualities and spending our days in a beneficial way.
The Board at Pian dei Ciliegi, having already had to cancel a few retreats due to the administrative restrictions, has decided to offer an opportunity for practice by organizing an online sitting of guided meditation every evening of the week (including weekends) from 20:30 to 21:30 through the platform Zoom. The session will be open to all – members as well as non-members – and will be guided in turn by Luisa Lazzarotto, Federica La Rosa, Dario Curti, Adriano Emina, Albina Locarno and Massimo Bonomelli.
If the initiative meets with the positive response we hope for, we will be in a position to invite other teachers to participate, offering teachings in English as well, to make the proposal beneficial to everyone.
At the moment we have space only for a hundred participants, but in the event that there is a greater request we will try to provide a larger meeting room.
In order to enter ‘the virtual meditation room’ it will be necessary to download the app Zoom available for Android, iOS, and the computer.

We encourage you to arrive to the meeting room already prepared, having already registered your account, so there is no delay in entering. At the same time, access will only be granted at about 20:30, with early arrivals kept waiting till the room is opened by the administrators.
