This Practice Group offers a gradual and systematic introduction to the practice of Insight Meditation (Vipassana) and to the teachings of the Buddha that inform this practice. Emphasis is placed on the practices of sitting and walking meditation as well as developing mindfulness in daily life.
Over the course of five weeks, participants will explore mindfulness of the body and of breathing, followed by mindfulness of emotions and thinking. We will practice bringing mindfulness to all aspects of our lives, cultivating kindness and ease.
The course is structured to help participants learn how to establish and sustain a daily meditation practice. Each meeting will include talks, instruction, questions and answers, as well as guided meditation practice.
The Way of Awareness is designed for beginners and is also appropriate for those with some meditation experience who would like to revisit the basics of insight meditation and/or deepen their practice. Everyone is welcome. Full and partial scholarships are available.
