This 6-week course introduces the practice of Buddhist insight (vipassana) meditation. The practice is based on the teachings of the Buddha contained within the Discourse on the Establishment of Mindfulness (Satipatthana Sutta).
The course integrates both theoretical and experiential aspects of the practice (sitting and walking meditations). There will be time for questions and feedback about individual meditation. Each session builds on the material from previous sessions and participants are encouraged to attend all 6 sessions of the course.
The course is led by Buddhist teacher, Jim Teoh, who draws from the satipatthana sutta and his 25 years of personal meditation experience. It is suitable for all skill levels.
Those who have previously completed the same course with the speaker can drop in for individual sessions.
Jim Teoh has been a Buddhist teacher for more than 25 years and was one of the initiators of the earliest structured Buddhist programs presented at the Buddhist Library. He has taught numerous Buddhist courses in various organisations, such as the Buddhist Council of NSW, Buddhist Library, Indonesian Buddhist Society of NSW and Bodhikusuma Buddhist and Meditation Centre. Jim is a regular speaker and meditation workshop facilitator at University Buddhist organisations. He is also trained as a Hospital Buddhist Chaplain.
All sessions by dana.
Dana is the traditional practice of generosity, the extending of one’s goodwill, which is fundamental to Buddhism and other spiritual traditions. The teachings flourish in an atmosphere of generosity and gratitude, and these qualities in turn support the growth of wisdom and compassion in the practitioner.
