Description

Due to popular demand for Insight Meditation Course, we now offer this course again in Sept 2017, this is a great chance to learn useful insight techniques or simply to refresh your practice. Registration is essential.

This 6-weeks course introduces the practice of Buddhist Insight (vipassana) meditation 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 & walking meditations), with time for questions and feedback about individual meditation experience. 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 beginners and practitioners of all levels.

New participants will be required to attend all six modules, as each module is an extension of the previous session. Those who have previously completed the same course can drop in for individual sessions to support your meditation practice.

After completing this course, you are eligible to join the Monthly Vipassana Meditation Practice which held monthly and led by Grahame White. For more details, please see the Buddhist Library events page.

Speaker's Profile

Jim Teoh has been a Buddhist teacher for more than twenty five 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 (donation).

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. The instructions and guidance for this course are offered without requesting a specified fee and it is up to individuals to determine the amount of dana they would like to offer. It can sometimes be easy to become confused when we are new to this and we wonder “how much should I give?” This is a relevant question in the material economy but an appropriate dana cannot be prescribed but requires sensitivity to its intent and awareness of the costs and expenses associated with organising a course (e.g., administrative & venue costs).
