Stream Circle: An online community for inner practice, connection, and growth

Connecting with others is actually the most powerful part of inner practice. Our guiding teacher in London, Zen master Julian Daizan Skinner, says, “we become like the people we spend time with,” and the beloved non-duality teacher Ram Dass said, “we’re all just walking each other home.” So, it’s invaluable, fun, human, and effective to spend time in community, with those who are practicing (as you are) to discover life on deeper levels and unlock greater health, happiness, compassion, and freedom from within.

We created “Stream Circle” to support you in exploring this path (or “entering the stream”!), in community with others.

It works well to join after taking our 2-week course (“Learn to Meditate”) or 6-week course (“Finding Inner Peace”). You’re also welcome to sign up as your first experience at Entering the Stream. It’s a long-standing tradition to join a group and learn your inner practice as you go along, and we provide everything you need to get started.

Stream Circle meets…

Online everywhere

…and we would love for you to join us!

The deep inner peace, joy, wisdom, and freedom that meditators have been uncovering for generations, from the inside out, are waiting for you, too, as you explore and develop your inner practice. Practicing together will help you enter this reality more swiftly and fully, in every moment.

Our practice schedule

We meet each week to practice and connect, online on Zoom from all over the world. Our weekly Zen meditation session is recorded, so you can watch or listen later on your own schedule, if you can’t attend live. Sign up for membership below.

 

Tuesdays

Zen Meditation Group — 8 am LA / 11 am NYC / 4 pm London

Join us on Zoom for our weekly 60-minute meditation class. You can log in from wherever you are — at home, at your desk, outside in nature, anywhere that works for you. We begin the session with a short welcome and a chance to check in, followed by two sitting meditation periods (one guided, and one in silence), with a break in between for reflection, further sharing or questions, and mindfulness. Our goal is for you to leave each week feeling refreshed, connected, inspired, and supported, in mind, body, and energy. From the grounding and peace of your own space, connect with other meditators and enrich your life and meditation path.

 

Fridays

Office Hours — 8 am LA / 11 am NYC / 4 pm London

Our weekly 60-minute “Office Hours” is a chance to stop by on Zoom for a one-to-one chat with your teacher about any questions and practice experiences you’ve been having recently. Personal support can help deepen and accelerate your practice (and make it more gentle and fun). This is an online drop-in session, and she will invite you into the Zoom meeting one person at a time. If there is someone ahead of you, please feel free to meditate while you wait. 

 

Stream Circle is a community committed to inner practice, genuine living, and a peaceful world, and we’d love for you to join.

How to join

You can join Stream Circle by registering as a member below.

Membership is $44/month (or $37/month, if you subscribe for 6 months at a time). You can cancel your membership anytime.

(Please note that we offer full and partial scholarships to Stream Circle.)

When you sign up, you’ll receive a welcome email within 24 hours, with the full details and instructions for attending our sessions.

You can come as often or as occasionally as you’d like. Even practicing in a group and/or touching base with a teacher just once a month or so will multiply and strengthen your results and enjoyment in your inner practice (and life).

“Love and Justice are not two. Without inner change, there can be no outer change. Without collective change, no change matters.” –Rev. angel Kyodo williams
“Love takes off the masks that we fear we cannot live without and know we cannot live within. I use the word ‘love’ here not merely in the personal sense but as a state of being, or a state of grace — not in the infantile American sense of being made happy but in the tough and universal sense of quest and daring and growth.” –James Baldwin
