CLARIFICATION OF BASIC TERMS
The Buddha’s remarkable discourse known as The Satipaţţhāna Sutta reveals a path of liberation that we walk through the direct understanding of the four foundations of mindfulness. With the Clarification of Basic Terms bonus material, Joseph Goldstein offers a 50-minute supplementary teaching session for listeners studying his Abiding in Mindfulness three-volume audio-learning course. Join him as he shares practical insights, moving poetry, and valuable meditation tips to illuminate three critical concepts: consciousness, mindfulness, and wisdom.
JOSEPH GOLDSTEIN: THE TRUE NATURE OF MINDFULNESS
Tami Simon speaks with Joseph Goldstein, who is the cofounder of the Insight Meditation Society in Barre, Massachusetts, and has been teaching insight and lovingkindness meditation worldwide since 1974. He is the coauthor of the Sounds True audio learning course Insight Meditation (with Sharon Salzberg), and has recently released the third volume of his landmark audio course of advanced teachings and practical guidance on the Satipatthāna Sutta, Abiding in Mindfulness. In this episode, Tami speaks with Joseph about his study of the Satipatthāna Sutta as the Buddha’s central teaching of mindfulness meditation, the evolution of his own practice over the past four decades, and what it might mean to live without any sense of there being an “I” or a “me.” (60 minutes)
