Satipaṭṭhāna Meditation is a study and practice online course developed by Venerable Bhikkhu Anālayo on the Satipaṭṭhāna-sutta, a foundational early Buddhist teaching. While based on scholarly research, the emphasis throughout this 9-week online course is to make this text relevant to actual meditation practice and to integrate it into daily living.
The core text for this course is Satipaṭṭhāna Meditation: A Practice Guide by Bhikkhu Anālayo. In order to promote accessibility and support individual learning styles, students are offered a variety of self-paced and interactive components, including recorded guided meditations and video lectures by Bhikkhu Anālayo, moderated forum-based discussions, and interactive group study meetings facilitated by guiding teachers. Each week students will investigate one aspect of the four foundations of mindfulness by contemplating a particular aspect of body, mind, feeling tone, or dhammas. The course is offered by the Barre Center for Buddhist Studies.
