Practicing Vipassana meditation is perhaps the greatest gift we can give to ourselves and others. Vipassana is concerned primarily with the cultivation of awareness and understanding. Awareness so that we can see our minds more clearly and Understanding so that we can know what is useful and what is not for experiencing a deep harmonious relationship with ourselves and the world.

This practice day includes guided sessions in sitting, standing and walking meditation. There will be time at the end to discuss strategies for the integration of mindfulness in daily life.

The course is suitable for beginners and also those with past experience in insight and mindfulness meditation practices.
