Erin Selover offers insight meditation retreats nationally. She also has a part-time psychotherapy practice and teaches leaders, activists, at-risk youth and women in prison to use mindfulness and values-based living to increase well-being and the greater good.
Insight Meditation, also known as Vipassana Meditation, is the 2,600-year-old practice of cultivating wise presence by bringing a caring, curious, and discerning attention to what is happening moment-to-moment. Conditioned to go after what we want and avoid what we don’t want, we often act from habit and reactivity instead of our deeper held values and beliefs. With mindful presence, we can learn to cut through habitual reactivity and access innate states of well-being, creativity, courage, and liberating personal and collective insight.
