This daylong is appropriate for students new to meditation as well as practitioners with some experience who would like a refresher course in basic instruction. In this traditional Insight Meditation (vipassana) daylong, the emphasis is on deepening into the silence that allows for the awakening of the heart.
The day will include instructions for sitting and walking meditation, an overview of Insight Meditation, the fundamentals of the Buddha's teachings, and time for questions and discussion.
Dana: This is a Dana (donation) day. The teacher is offering the day as a gift to the Spirit Rock community. Our regular daylong fee of $55 - $155 is waived for this event. The practice of generosity, or Dana, in all forms is considered a central pillar of Buddhadharma practice. We invite you to contribute what is appropriate for you.
