Event description

Description

Please arrive 5 to 10 min before class starts for an introduction to the meditation we teach and practice at our Center

We teach and practice a type of meditation known as Mahasati meditation. Mahasati in Pali means “great awareness.” It is a form of Vipassana or Insight meditation which originates in Southeast Asia.

Mahasati meditation cultivates self-awareness initially through attention to the movement of the body and, at intermediate and more advanced levels, to the movement of the mind. This ultimately leads to a direct and profound understanding of the origins of suffering in human experience and points the way toward ultimate liberation.

While Mahasati meditation has its roots in Buddhism, it is not necessary to accept any type of religious doctrine in order to practice. It is also possible to practice it conjointly with other forms of religious practice.
