Guidelines During our Temporary Transition to Online Classes
Our live streaming is a temporary measure for people to access Dharma from their local Center and stay connected with their community until we open our doors again. We recognize that many people from the Madison area and Wisconsin or Minnesota in general may be checking out our teachings for the first time, and we welcome you.
Since this is a new endeavor for all of us, and in order to help everyone have the best experience, we’ve prepared a few guidelines and preparations you can follow in order to get the most out of teachings in this format:
- Plan ahead. Registration closes one hour before each class. From your end, this can be a first step in carving out time (much like setting the intention to drive to your local center). On our end, this helps to ensure we are inviting participants who have registered and are following other requirements.
- Designate a space that is quiet and as private as possible. Let others around you know what you will be doing, and ask for their help ensuring you have a meaningful experience during the set timeframe of the class.
- Minimize distractions in the space so that you can fully engage in the teachings. If possible, leaving your cell phone in the other room, closing the door of the space where you are, and not engaging in side conversations (if others have registered and are participating with you), are measures you can take to help you focus.
- Reach out with any questions! Please e-mail our Center at [email protected] or call us at (608) 661-3211. We are here, and happy to answer any questions and offer assistance.
We wish you happiness and good health, and look forward to opening our doors to the community again.
