Note from Camille Hykes
Dear Margha Friends,
It is a joy to announce that our weekly Margha Program initiative begun just last autumn -- Mitra-Guided Meditation Practice on Thursday Nights -- is being called forth into 2021.
Beginning Thursday evening, January 14, you're invited to share in our main monthly meditation practice from 7:30-8:15 pm (EST) with one of our dedicated, well-practiced Mitras, who will guide us in meditation and address your practice-related questions.
This rich opportunity to personally explore and deepen our understanding of each month's main meditation practice also invites us to be with others in the wider Margha community, and to learn as well through their own questions and reflections. And of course you'll have the opportunity to practice deeply over time with an array of our wonderful Mitras, each one unique.
We look forward to sharing together with you in this meaningful way. Warmest wishes and great well-wishing for your unfolding practice...
Camille Hykes and Bob Morrison
