Vipassana or Insight Meditation and Instruction: A Path of Practice from Retreat (31:15 min.)

Dec 5, 2018

Vipassana, also known as insight meditation, is training in bringing a clear mindful attention to our moment to moment experience. We begin by relaxing through the body and then resting attention with the breath – or some other sensory anchor – and allowing the mind to settle. Then we open to whatever is predominant or calling our attention – sensations, emotions, sounds – meeting each arising experience with a clear, kind attention. The gift of this process is discovering balance in the midst of the changing flow, and gaining deep insight into the nature of reality.

NOTE: Tara was traveling this week, so we offer this special short talk and meditation from the Fall 2018 IMCW Fall Silent Retreat – published for the first time.
