Mindfulness Wisdom Teachings – The Satipatthana Sutta
An 8-week On-Line Insight Meditation Course
Insight meditation (sometimes known as Mindfulness) is based on the teachings of the Buddha. In these eight sessions we will progressively examine and then practice the instructions on meditation as laid out in the Satipatthana Sutta, the Buddha’s principle teaching on mindfulness. This is the practice of bare attention, of learning to simply be with whatever is arising.
This course is suitable as both an introduction to the practice of meditation for complete beginners and as a way for more experienced practitioners to look more closely at the Buddha's teachings.
Each session will start with a short meditation period to settle the body and mind, followed by detailed instructions taken from the sutta, followed by a longer sitting where we can immediately practice these instructions. At the end of each session there will be time for questions and discussion.
All of these sessions will be on Thursday nights from 7-8:45pm. It would be best to attend all the sessions to get a complete understanding of the practice. However each session will stand on its own and people are welcome to attend any or all of them. All the teachings will be recorded, and the recordings will be put on this web site, so if you do miss a week it will be easy to "catch up".
When: Thursdays 7:00 - 8:45 pm, August 27 - October 15.
