A Body of Kindness

with Jill Satterfield

7-10am PT / 10am-1pm ET / 3-6pm GMT / 4-7pm CET

Discover the heart-opening power of embodied mindfulness with Jill Satterfield

Attuned to the world around us and all that’s going on within us, our bodies are sensing it all – often before the conscious mind has a chance to catch up.

Developing our somatic awareness can awaken us to the body’s wisdom and intuition, giving us the pause we need to reflect and respond rather than react. Reaction leads to suffering, but response opens us to compassion and alignment.

As we attune to tightening and contracting in the body/mind, we understand how the body expresses clinging or ways of saying “No.”

As we equally notice softening and letting go in the body, we understand its way of saying “Yes, I can be with what is.”

Much of this practice is noticing with active discernment. The advantages of being embodied offer the skilful means to make conscious choices. This will be the focus of a Day of Practice with world-renowned Buddhist teacher, Jill Satterfield.

Drawing from the principles of Ahimsa (non-harming), Vipassana (insight), Nama Rupa (union of mind and body), and somatic psychology, together we’ll practice witnessing the elegant and articulate nuanced states of a body expressing a heart/mind.

Join this *Live* 3-hour workshop to explore:

  • Mindfulness practices to cultivate the Four Divine Abodes
  • Meditation practices counteract negativity and reactivity
  • Breathing practices to balance the nervous system
  • Imagination to evoke states of love and kindness

What is Day of Practice?

Sangha Live’s 3-hour, LIVE Day of Practice allows for you to drop in deeper, develop your meditation skills, and reset your intentions through sustained sitting.

Days of Practice includes longer periods of meditation, interspersed with wise teachings, an interactive Q&A with our teacher, and more.

Replay access will be available to all registrants within 48 hours of the live session.

How is Day of Practice different from Sangha Live’s Daily/Sunday classes?

Our shorter Daily Meditation (60 mins) and Sunday Sangha (90 mins) programs emphasize dharma teachings, while our longer Days of Practice (3 hours) emphasize development of meditation practice.

Daily practice is crucial for watering seeds of mindfulness, but extended periods of deep attention such as these, away from the hustle and bustle of daily life, can be uniquely fruitful.


Day of Practice is offered on a sliding scale basis, with a suggested rate of $35. We wholeheartedly welcome all to practice with us; no one turned away for lack of funds.
