Dhamma Discussion Group

The Dhamma Discussion Group (DDG) is an open to anyone who has attended Sunday evening practice for at least one month and is an ongoing member of CIMG attending the Sunday night sit regularly.

The group meets on the second Tuesday of every month and is led by John McIntyre who facilitates the discussion. Over the last few years we have developed a syllabus of ten topics, beginning with an exploration of the meaning of sati and satipatthana. We loosely follow as a text¬† Bhikkhu Analayo’s Satipatthana: The Direct Path to Realisation and more recently Joseph Goldstein’s Mindfulness.

There is an emphasis on understanding vipassana practice in the Mahasi tradition of insight meditation and the larger context of Theravadan Buddhist teachings.

Notification of each meeting is by email to everyone on the CIMG email list. If you are not already on the list and would like to come to the group, email info@canberrainsightmeditationgroup.org and ask to go on the list. Please note that you must have attended Sunday evening practice for at least one month and be attending the Sunday night sit regularly to be eligible for the list.
