Mindfulness Wisdom Teachings – The Satipatthana Sutta
An 8-week In Person 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 chanting the Three Refuges, 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 Monday nights from 6:45 - 8:15 pm. 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 of these sessions have been previously recorded and are on this website here, so if you do miss a week it will be easy to "catch up".
When: Mondays 6:45 - 8:15 pm, September 26 - November 21 (Skipping Oct. 31).
Where: Twilight Yoga in the King Supper Plaza at 30th and Arapahoe in Boulder.
