Thanks to modern technology and especially to Zoom, Google Duo and Skype it’s possible for us to have valuable time together and to sit with each other for a meditation session.
A one week course can help you establish a personal practice and have an understanding / experience of Zen Meditation.
MEDITATION is a really useful tool to utilise during this period of uncertainty so I’m delighted to be able to offer this online course for beginners or indeed for anyone that would like support for an established (or lapsed) practice.
The course includes an introduction along with postural advice and meditation tips to help you begin and hopefully continue with this excellent life tool. Each meeting will last about one hour with 2 sitting meditations interspersed with a walking meditation. All you will need is an internet connection in a quiet place where you can sit comfortably and enough space to walk around a little.
This 7 day course can begin on any day/date and we can coordinate a convenient time. I suggest an early morning slot at your local time zone.

Cost: Rs2,500 (£30)

Balaji Mahadev – December 2020 – Bangalore 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟
I just completed an online course with Karen Sivan, and i had a wonderful initiation to the zen meditation and Kin hin meditation, i did 7 one hour sittings and Karen was very prompt and patient in all these sittings, i highly recommend this course by Karen, to someone who wants to start zen meditation from the comfort of their homes.
Lena – October 2020 – Sweden 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟
I had an “online sitting” week with Karen in october 2020 (my plan was to go to Bodhi Zendo in December, but I realised with the ongoning pandemi it was not possible). Before I have met Karen on several happenings, to start with sitting with her when I was on holiday in Kovalam back in 2013. Since then it has grown up to five sesshins with fr. Ama Samy in India, Switzerland and Sweden. I never come close to sit by own, but now I did it online from my own home in Sweden with Karen. After seven mornings/ sitting I shall now try sit on my own for three days and then take another course with Karen for one week. I specially enjoyed that I was in my own surroundings. I was a bit ringrusty about the Closing chant “Ti Sarana” the first morning but learned it for the next day. What is good with Karen is that during the meditation/ sitting you know she is absolutely serious. I like that. After the sitting we will often burst into laughter. This for me was a first start to sit at home. I put some candles on, and then I am there with pc or mobile with Karen in the sitting. And it does do me well. My nerves are stilled, my body and brain functions so much better afterwards. I truelly advice anyone to do this online sitting with Karen. I still have to train more on the Kinhin walking. I remember Karen from my first walking meditation (2013), very slowly, very concentrated. Do try this! Even when it is raining in Kovalam ( a lot of noice) or her cat is on her pc, it doesn’t worry me. I am sitting with Karen.
