    Once every two months, usually on the first Sunday, Jim Teoh will offer this follow-up group for people who’ve already attended one of his Insight (Vipassana) Meditation courses. It will include sitting and walking meditation, meditation instruction, a short Dhamma talk and discussion, and interviews with the teacher for feedback about your personal meditation practice.

    This group is open only to people who have previously completed an Insight Meditation course with Jim.

    The group is limited to 20 people, so registration is essential to reserve your place and avoid disappointment.


    Teacher profile

    Jim Teoh has been a Buddhist teacher for more than twenty 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, including 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 are by Donation (Dana) to the Buddhist Library. All donations to the Buddhist Library of $2 and over are tax deductible.
    Dana is the traditional practice of generosity, the extending of one’s goodwill, which is fundamental to Buddhism and other spiritual traditions. The instructions and guidance for this course are offered without requesting a 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. It requires sensitivity to its intent and awareness of the costs and expenses associated with organising a course.
