Event Details

Event Description

Vipassana Meditation is based upon the teachings of the Buddha, and has been revived as a secular form of psychological development. It raises into consciousness the full contents of the mind, and reorganizes thoughts and feelings in keeping with new fundamental insights about one's self and all of nature. These fundamental insights, in turn, are compatible with the scientific worldview that understands all things to be impermanent, changing aggregates that follow universal laws. Vipassana practice guides its practitioners towards a life of harmony, peace, and moral discernment.

About the Speaker

Goenka.  He is the author of several books including Wonder: When and Why the World Appears Radiant, Cultivating Inner Peace, Karma and Chaos, and An Ancient Path.  Dr. Fleischman practiced psychiatry for more than 30 years and has lectured widely in the Americas, Asia and Europe.  He was honored by the American Psychiatric Association for his contributions to the study of spirituality and religion in medicine.
