Online Practice Guidelines

 

Preparation
 

Minimize visual distractions for others.
– Consider what is showing behind you.
– It’s best to put the camera at eye level, so that when you’re looking at the screen, it appears as if you’re looking at the person you’re talking to.

Mute yourself when not speaking even if you’re alone in the room.
– Your microphone can pick up a lot of background noise, so muting allows others on the call to easily hear who’s speaking.
– Please keep your mic muted during chanting. Unfortunately, our chanting over an online meeting connection is not going to be in sync.

 

Sit up, rather than lying on your bed or the couch (if physically possible), as if you are in the meditation hall. Use your cushion or a straight-backed chair.
