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 formal practices of sitting and walking meditation as well as on 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. Specific techniques and troubleshooting guidance will be offered for how to bring your mindfulness practice off the cushion into all the activities of each day: eating, traveling, communicating with others, and so much more. We will practice cultivating kindness and ease.
The course is structured to help participants learn how to establish, sustain, or refresh a daily meditation practice. Each meeting will include guided meditation instructions, teachings, and Q&A.
“The Way of Awareness” is designed for beginners and is also appropriate for those with meditation experience who would like to revisit or refresh the basics of Insight Meditation and/or deepen their practice. Everyone is welcome.
Full and partial scholarships are available up to 72 hours before the start of the program. This program will not be recorded.
