Other teachers and communities 

While many of us would prefer to meet face-to-face, geographical and time zone distances make this difficult, if not impossible.  However, there are many online groups where people meet regularly and share their meditation journals with a teacher and discuss the Dharma.  In addition, many teachers speak online with individual students about their meditation practice, their journals, and their questions about meditation.

For information about additional meditation groups, retreats, and online opportunities, please contact these teachers:
