Have you wondered how to be consistent with your meditation practice? What does it take to learn how to meditate and sustain a meditation practice as a nourishing daily habit? Come join us in person at CIMC for a gradual and systematic introduction to the practice of Insight Meditation (Vipassana) and to the teachings of the Buddha that inform this practice. Learn how to practice meditation while sitting, walking, standing, and lying down. Specific techniques and troubleshooting guidance will be offered for how to bring your mindfulness practice off the cushion into your daily life. You will learn both how to formally meditate and to be mindful while eating, traveling, communicating with others, and so much more.
Over the course of five weeks, we will explore mindfulness of the body and of breathing, followed by mindfulness of emotions and thinking. We will incorporate an awareness of the ethics of practice bringing mindfulness to all aspects of our lives, developing kindness, ease, and wisdom.
The course is structured to help participants learn how to establish, sustain, or refresh a daily practice. Each meeting will include guided meditation instructions, teachings, and Q&A.
“The Way of Awareness” is designed for beginners and is also appropriate for those with meditation experience who would like to revisit the basics of Insight Meditation and/or deepen their practice. Everyone is welcome.
Note: There will be no class on Monday, May 30.
