Introductory Meditation Class – Eastside
An event every week that begins at 7:00 pm on Tuesday, repeating until February 16, 2021
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 peace and growing understanding of the nature of things. Out of this seeing emerges wisdom and compassion.
Insight meditation is a moment-by-moment investigation of the mind and body process. Our experience is explore from a balanced and spacious awareness that allows the heart to flower in love. During these six weeks there will be meditation instructions, talks about the philosophy of the practice, homework assignments, and time for discussion and questions.
