The BSWA is delighted to present another workshop in the series on Early Buddhism.

We will continue where we left off with the last workshop.

This means we will focus on the seventh factor of the Noble Eightfold Path, right mindfulness, otherwise known as satipaṭṭhāna, “the applications of mindfulness”.

Satipaṭṭhāna is about meditation practice.

There will be two separate workshops on satipaṭṭhāna.

The first one (Workshop Part I), which spans four consecutive Saturdays (27 November to 18 December), will cover general aspect, such as:

  • The purpose of satipaṭṭhāna on the Buddhist path,
  • The interplay of samatha and vipassanā (calm and insight), and
  • The historical development of the Satipaṭṭhāna Sutta.


In the second workshop (Workshop Part  II) (details to be announced), we will look at the details of the practice, with the aim of understanding the essence of Buddhist meditation.


We are excited and very grateful that Ajahn Brahmali will be back to conduct Workshop Part I.

But this time round with a difference, as it will be a ONE MONK SHOW. 😊


We have made changes to the lesson plan.
