I want to copy a sentence from a page/post on my site, to another page/post on the same site.
Is it ok to do so?

You can do it but then you will have duplicate content (although I'm not sure one sentence will matter) which Google will not rank.

Instead you should put a link on the new page to the page where the sentence is ... Google loves relevant internal links!

ROCK ON!

Is it the same for repeating a sentence on the same page?
Can you take a look? It's the sentence: [ Follow the "How to start the meditation".] that I repeat 7 times in the same page.
And this is the same sentence I want to copy-paste to other posts also.

The more I think about it the less it seems like an issue. I am not sure where Google considers content as duplicate. Many works cite other works and also use quoted material and we all repeat our keywords which sometimes are nearly sentences themselves. I think you will be fine.

Although if it makes sense for the visitor to read the existing page to understand pr compliment the new page you should add a link somewhere.

I have added many links but in the specific point I need to repeat it.
I also think it's ok because it's not a big sentence.
I think I will ask Kyle just to be 100% sure.
Thank you for you help :)

You'll be fine to repeat it. You're welcome.
