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

Mindfulness & Meditation

Insight Meditation, known as Vipassana in the Buddhist tradition, is a simple technique which has been practiced in Asia for more than 2,600 years. Beginning with focusing attention on the breath, the practice concentrates and calms the mind. It allows us to see through the mind's conditioning and thereby to live more fully present in the moment. Mindfulness is a way of maintaining a moment-by-moment awareness of thoughts, feelings, bodily sensations and the surrounding environment. Meditation practice helps us cultivate the skills for mindfulness.

Some of the themes covered in this learning path include: Mindfulness, meditation, Insight, concentration.
