There are two main ways to practice Insight Meditation. The first is directing one’s attention to an “anchor”, a main meditation object such as the sensations of breath or body. The other involves not directing one’s attention to any particular object and simply noticing what is being known at any given moment.
In this retreat, we will explore the differences between these two essential methods, which meditative qualities they support, and when it is more skillful to use one or the other, or some combination of the two. It is important for the Vipassana meditator to be clear about these things and facile in putting them into practice. This is the art of meditation.
In our day together, we will practice honing our skills through guided and silent meditation, Dharma teachings and group discussion. This retreat will be supportive for both beginning as well as more experienced meditators. Everyone is welcome.
Full and partial scholarships are available up to 72 hours before the start of the program.
