Insight Meditation Retreat

Insight Meditation (vipassana in Pali, the language of the original Buddhist teachings) is the simple and direct practice of moment-to-moment mindfulness. Through careful and sustained observation, we experience for ourselves the ever-changing flow of the mind/body process. This awareness leads us to accept more fully the pleasure and pain, fear and joy, sadness and happiness that life inevitably brings. As insight deepens, we develop greater equanimity and peace in the face of change, and wisdom and compassion increasingly become the guiding principles of our lives.

The life of the body is a tether to moment to moment experience. Cultivating an enlarged awareness, infused with kindness, plus directly contacting sensations, allows us to be with unpleasant sensations we often call "pain"
