Insight Meditation for Calmness and Clarity

For all levels.

Insight meditation (vipassana) is a simple technique that originated in the Buddha’s teachings and was kept alive for more than 2,500 years in Asia. The practice teaches you to calm and steady the mind by gently grounding your attention in the present moment. The mind is then prepared to look into itself and all of life with more openness and clarity. Clarity leads to insight, which frees you from reactive patterns, so you can more fully experience the vast potential of your mind and heart.

Matthew Daniell introduces sitting, walking, and daily-life meditation methods, using attention on breath and body as the foundation. Discussion and teaching complement periods of silent meditation as you explore the power of present-moment awareness (mindfulness). While this retreat is paced to support beginners, everyone is welcome to attend.
