The Sati Center will be offering a 8 week course with Bob Stahl, PhD on “32 Parts of the Body Meditation”. This practice will cultivate deeper insight into the true nature of the body and most importantly to help see through the identifications, conditionings, beliefs, and narratives – the erroneous view of self. It has also been used for healing illness. Various methods will be taught to strengthen mindfulness of the body and to explore the mind/body connection.
Classes will be held Wednesdays, September 14 to November 2, 2022, at 6:30-8:30PM Pacific Time over Zoom. This course is eligible for 12 hours of Continuing Education credit.

In this mini-series in three sessions Bhikkhunī Dhammadinnā looks at the map of the four stages of awakening (stream-entry, once-return, non-return and arahantship) recognized in early Buddhism. They are explored through the prism of early Buddhist meditation theory and practice and contextualised in light of the experiential, existential and transformative dimensions of the early Buddhist path to freedom. Different conceptualisations of the path and fruits of awakening arisen in later Buddhist tradition will also be explored in light of the interplay between theory and practice.
Bhikkhunī Dhammadinnā is a scholar-monastic and practitioner, born in Italy in 1980. She is the director of the Āgama Research Group and her main research interests are the early Buddhist discourses and Vinaya texts, as well as the development of the theories, practices and ideologies of Buddhist meditative traditions (for her publications, see here). Bhikkhunī Dhammadinnā has been practicing meditation since 1996 and has been studying and collaborating with Bhikkhu Anālayo since 2007.

The Buddha highlighted seven shining jewels as supports for awakening. These jewels, also known as the Seven Factors of Awakening, have an important role in our meditation practice, daily life and the path of liberation. In this seven-month program we will explore and practice with these jewels so that they can shine in our lives. We will spend one month on each factor: Mindfulness, Investigation, Energy, Joy, Tranquility, Concentration and Equanimity.
The program includes monthly Zoom meetings, readings and the writing of short reflective essays. The meetings will include talks, discussions and guided meditations.
Prerequisites: At least one year of committed insight meditation practice and completion of IMC’s Eight-fold Path Program or its equivalent.
You can register here to receive a link to the Google Classroom that will have the zoom links and course materials.
