Bhavana Learning Group offers a weekly Practice Field.

Serving our Client Community 

On February 3, 2019, Bhavana Learning Group launched a weekly one-hour Practice Field for our client community to deepen their practices and develop community. Together, we learn to use our breath and embodied practices to cultivate awareness and wisdom in everyday life.

Time: The Practice Field is held for one hour, every Sunday at 10:00 am (EST).

Where: Zoom Platform.

Requirement: Our firm’s current or former clients or former students in our multi-course programs.

Intention: To tune in to a “field” of practice in our everyday lives.

Purpose: Develop the awareness for trusting direct perception – increasingly – more than relying on conceptual constructs.

Practice Field Faculty.

  • Director, Neil Ruiz.
  • Guides, Brendalyn King, Heather Wood, and Tony Zampella.

The Process.

During each one-hour session, participants learn to embody contemplative practices by sharing experiences of real-life situations, bringing questions for the group, and gathering insights from the community.

Each week a guide will lead a practice and facilitate:

  • Participating in a 15-minute meditation to deepen our contemplative practices.
  • Sharing the direct experiences from that exercise.
  • Exploring practices in our lives and sharing questions and successes with the group.
  • On occasion, a wisdom teaching is presented.

To enjoy membership in our online learning community and enable participation, we offer these Community Guidelines. Please review these to enhance your experience. We also offer the following :
