"When one thought ends, right before the next thought begins,
there is a tiny gap called 'now.' Over time we learn to expand that gap."

– Spring Washam

Mindfulness Meditation

Insight Meditation, is a simple technique which has been adapted from the traditional Vipassana 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.
