    On the second Sunday of every month, Jim Teoh will offer this follow-up group for people who’ve already attended mindfulness meditation courses led by the Buddhist Library teachers. 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 or Mindfulness Meditation Meditation course with Jim Teoh, Dr Chien Hoong Gooi and Grahame White.

    Please note; the first session in 2023 will be on 8th January.

     

    Teacher profile

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.
