Course objectives:

  • Discuss and practice the power of mindfulness and bare attention within meditation and everyday life.
  • Define and discuss the five precepts, the five hindrances, the eight conditions of life, the three kinds of suffering, and the five spiritual powers as taught by the Buddha and explored within Insight Meditation.
  • Integrate an understanding of karma, faith, wisdom, and lovingkindness within meditation practices and everyday life.
  • Practice basic instructions for sitting, walking, and eating meditations.
  • Practice guided meditations related to intentions, feelings, emotions, thoughts and images.
  • Practice guided meditations related to the five hindrances and working with pain, as well as lovingkindness.

The number of Buddhist meditation centers in North America has doubled in little more than a decade, confirming the ever-widening appeal of this ancient approach to inner peace and self-understanding.

Designed to respond to this burgeoning interest, Insight Meditation makes it easy to start meditating in the Buddhist tradition. This elegant gift-boxed set includes two exclusive compact discs with authentic guided meditations, complemented by study cards and a special instruction book with the beginner in mind.

Join the popular cofounders of America's oldest center for the study of Buddhist vipassana ("insight") meditation, Sharon Salzberg and Joseph Goldstein, for this complete introduction to meditation as the Buddha first taught it. If you are curious about meditation but don't know how to get started, here is the answer in a box: Insight Meditation.

This is a great guide for people who have no access to a teacher or meditation group. And even if you do have access, this kit will help you to continue and deepen your practice. I highly recommend it.
