I am fairly new to Buddhism and have been spending time reading books on the subject and hope to learn with this online forum since money and distant makes it hard to get to the local Center I have been trying to find an online sangha as well.

To study is to know the texts,
To practice is to know your defilements,
To attain the goal is to know and let go.

- Ajahn Lee Dhammadharo

With mindfulness immersed in the body
well established, restrained
with regard to the six media of contact,
always centered, the monk
can know Unbinding for himself.

- Ud 3.5

Ultimately, your meditation involves sustaining the knowing, followed by continuous letting go as you experience sense objects through the eyes, ears, nose, tongue, body and mind. It involves just this much and there is no need to make anything more out of it.

- Ajahn Chah

Welcome! Yuttadhammo Bhikkhu runs an online meditation group, and it may be the kind of sangha you are looking for.
May the blessings of the Buddha, the Dhamma, and the Sangha always be firmly established in your hearts.
