"In truth we are always present; we only imagine ourselves to be in one place or another."
—Howard Cohn

All Programs at Spirit Rock

Insight Meditation (known as Vipassana in the Buddhist tradition) is a simple technique which has been practiced in Asia for over 2,600 years. Beginning with the focusing of attention on the breath, the practice concentrates and calms the mind. It allows one to see through the mind's conditioning and thereby to live more fully present in the moment. Its presentation through Spirit Rock Meditation Center is non-sectarian, although the ethics and traditions of Buddhist psychology are included for guidance.
