With the advent of online video conferencing, connecting from remote distances has become a lot easier.
At Happy Ho we strongly recommend first session on-ground as meeting and talking with gurus and meditation masters is far more impactful. However, post that, things can be handled virtually or through online conferencing.
We run meditation workshops using the videoconferencing facilities of Skype/Google+, and also arrange talks by Masters of repute.
Each session lasts for about 90 minutes. In case of meditation, it includes initial chat by the meditation master, guided meditation and a question-answer session. In case of Guru speak, it is a 60 minute talk with 30 minutes of rigorous discussions.
