Meditation can help unlock powerful and transformative insights into the nature of our minds and lives. This includes a better understanding of the roots of our own dissatisfaction and uncovering new well-springs of happiness and wellbeing that we didn’t know before.
In this course, we’ll explore two powerful ways of using meditation to produce more wisdom and insight (vipassana) by closely examining our experience with disciplined attention and reflecting deeply on the human condition.
Each class in this series will build on the previous. By the end of series students will be able to confidently practice these traditional meditative skills, have a clear understanding of how these practices of insight progress over time, and have a better understanding of their own minds and lives.
