Event Information

Event description


Sitting With Bodhi, Series Four: Overcoming Self-Hatred and Self-Criticism, and Learning to Love Yourself

We all long for someone who can give us unconditional love, support, and encouragement. But what if that person is ourself?

  • A 28-Session Online Meditation Course
  • Enroll anytime between now and Dec 25
  • You control the pace of the emails
  • Take as long as you want to complete

In Sitting With Bodhi there are no readings, just guided meditations, each prefaced by a two- to three-minute introduction. It's all about doing meditation.

This series contains 28 meditation downloads. Each session helps you explore the skills and habits that help you to be kinder, more patient, and more accepting of yourself.

How Sitting With Bodhi Works

You'll be sent 28 emails, each of which contains a link to a new guided meditation, especially recorded for this event.

Each meditation provides a 10-minute lead-in to a particular way of approaching our experience. This series will focus on meditations that allow us to develop radical calmness, peace, and tranquillity.

  1. Set a timer and for as long as you want to sit — for example 15, 20, or 30 minutes (12 minutes minimum is recommended).
  2. Start playing the meditation on your computer or mobile device. There is no closing bell; you are instead invited to continue with the practice.
  3. After the guidance has ended, continue to practice until the end of your chosen time period.

The next day's email won't be sent out to you until you've clicked a link in the previous day's email. So if you have a busy day and aren't able to listen to the guided meditation there's no pressure! The next email will only arrive when you are ready for it!

Download or Stream

The daily emails give you links both to streaming versions of the guided meditations and to MP3 files that you can download, so that you have them available forever.

Questions I've Been Asked

Q. Are you are able to return and revisit a meditation after you complete it?
A. Yes. You can download the meditations and listen to them as often as you want. The Youtube versions will probably be left up forever as well.

Q. Do the meditations have to be completed within the course dates?
A. No. There is no end date for the course, and it doesn't matter how long you take to complete the series. You really can go at your own pace.

Q. Do I have to do previous series of Sitting With Bodhi before I do later ones?
A. No, these are all stand-alone series.

What Previous Participants Have Said

In an anonymous survey of Sitting With Bodhi participants, 92% said that they wanted to continue with the series in the future. Here are some of the comments that participants made:

  • "I learned more in the first 10 meditations than in the last 6 months. So many new ways to explore. My sitting is now so much interesting, with focus...i am excited about each sitting....i have one comment....Thank you Bodhi!"
  • "Really enjoying the breadth of the course instruction and the accessibility of it. Starting with an intention of at least 10mins a day makes it easy to sit, and then sit for longer."
  • "The meditations have helped my practice become more consistent, thank you."
  • "I'm really enjoying the meditations. Thank you Bodhi for all your gentle guidance."
  • "Thank you!! For all the work you’ve put into this. This course and knowing a new meditation will arrive each day has got me to my cushion again daily, which is such a relief and a joy."
  • "really useful, grounding me into quiet stillness at a time when a lot of change is happening "out there" in my life. I love the feeling of connection in the community group, too. Thank you Bodhipaksa."
  • "I appreciate having the daily reminder - I use the recording to start my sit, and then continue as my time allows. While I appreciate the many longer emails that Bodhi has provided in other courses, these are perfect just to get my "tush on the cush."
  • "This series is proving really helpful in encouraging a daily practice. The (apparently) simple format is not daunting, and I find myself looking forward to sitting each morning."
  • "I am really enjoying the course. I do the meditation for 20 minutes each morning (as I have meditated each day since your course last year on developing a regular practice, for which I thank you) and I am finding that it is reinvigorating and helping to develop my practice. I can only say "thank you."
  • "I always find a little deeper awareness, a little more calmness, and lots of wonderful techniques to use in my unguided meditation. And I LOVE your voice!"
