Insight meditation practice (also known as vi-passana or mindfulness) is a training of attention that wakes us up of our conditioned mind and reveals the nature of reality; reveals our basic goodness. The practice of meditation reminds us who we really are. It allows us to relax peacefully, be happy with no reason and love with no boundaries. Meditation helps us remember what really matters, so that we live fully, love fully and be fully present for our lives.
The course will cover:
- Foundations for mindfulness practice
- Foundations for meditations on loving kindness and compassion
- Meditation and daily life
- The development of a gradual personal daily practice
The course is practical and suitable for beginners as well as practitioners who would like to deepen their meditation practice. The course will emphasize a friendly, loving approach to one-self, practice and reality. Full participation in all meetings is required. Participants will be asked to dedicate time to daily practice.
