Shaila offers a series of online courses in the development of concentration and insight through Bodhi Courses, an online Buddhist classroom. She usually offers two courses per year. Each course includes lectures, readings, guided meditations, reflective exercises, and discussions that are intended to deepen concentration and lead to enlightenment. Online courses are excellent opportunities to stay in contact with Shaila and these practices between the retreats. They also offer excellent opportunities for newcomers to gain an introduction to her approach, and for students who practice jhāna with other teachers to gain a well rounded understanding of the role of jhāna in a Buddhist practice.
