About Insight Meditation
Insight meditation, also known as mindfulness or vipassana meditation, comes from the Buddhist tradition. It aims to free the mind from the distortions of self-centeredness, negativity, and confusion. Seeing life as a constantly changing process, one begins to accept pleasure and pain, fear and joy, and all aspects of life with increasing balance and equanimity. This balanced awareness, grounded in the present moment, leads to stillness and a growing understanding of the nature of life. Out of this seeing emerges wisdom and compassion. Your registration includes attendance at a Day of Mindfulness on Saturday, February 23, 2019 at Seattle Insight Meditation Society.
This is a beginning class. All are welcome, and no experience is necessary. The class is also appropriate for experienced meditators who would like to revisit the basics or hear about mindfulness meditation from the perspective of a different teacher.
If you have a question about this class series or for the teacher, please contact Steve Wilhelm, email@example.com.
