  • 1:30 pm - 3:00 pm Zoom: Introduction to Mindfulness Meditation with Ying Chen
    On Zoom: Mindfulness meditation, also known as insight meditation or vipassana, is a simple technique that concentrates and calms the mind. At the heart of mindfulness meditation is the practice of moment-to-moment observation which cultivates a clear, stable and non-judgmental awareness. While mindfulness practice can be highly effective in helping bring calm and clarity to the pressures of daily life, it is also a spiritual path that gradually dissolves the barriers to the full development of our wisdom and compassion.

  • 8:30 am - 10:00 am Navigating the Way: Exploring the Kalama Sutta with Diana Clark, Ying Chen, David Lorey and Kim Allen

    Navigating the Way: Exploring the Kalama sutta

    With Diana Clark, Ying Chen, Kim Allen and David Lorey

     Join us in exploring one of the central questions of our practice: how do we know which teachings, practices, and actions to follow? In the Kalama Sutta, one of the most important discourses of the Buddha (AN 3.65), the Buddha offers guidance on this question as well as other teachings related to loving-kindness, the role of views, wise speech, and the four assurances (a version of Pascal’s Wager).

    In this 4-session course, offered by the Sati Center, we will explore the richness of the Kalama Sutta, developing a multifaceted picture of ways to navigate our spiritual path. Sessions will include meditation, teachings, and small-group discussions.

    Dates: July 11, 14, 16, and 18 (Sat, Tues, Thurs, Sat)

    Time: 8:30-10:00 am Pacific

    Note: On the weekdays (Tues, Thurs), the class will be 1 hour (8:30-9:30) followed by an optional guided meditation from 9:30-10:00.  While for the Saturday classes the guided meditation will be integrated into the class.

    Please register by sending an email to practicecourses.saticenter@gmail.com and you will receive the Zoom link
