Description

The Building Blocks of Insight Meditation (Mindfulness) w/ David Sudar



Would you like to learn the deeper roots of mindfulness meditation?

Are you curious how its core techniques & perspectives can help us find deeper peace, presence and connection even amidst our busy, modern lives?

Insight Meditation (Vipassana) began over 2,500 years ago with the Buddha, and is now commonly known as “Mindfulness Meditation." It's been rigorously studied in universities, and taught to schools & business as much as spiritual seekers.

This experiential workshop will cut to the core of what it's all about, and offer a clear understanding of the what, why and how. More specifically, through guided meditations, lecture and discussion, you will learn:

  • The difference between mindfulness & attention (and how it's the key to practicing in daily life).
  • A visual framework for understanding all mindfulness techniques (and how to choose the best one for you).
  • The three core insights that lead to deep acceptance, equanimity & peace with what is.
  • The felt difference between reacting to our emotions/other people & responding to them.
  • Simple instructions for taking this practice beyond the workshop.

On a personal note, this workshop is a condensing of 10,000+ hours of my own Insight Meditation practice as well as two years of teaching to hundreds of students. I feel incredibly grateful to be able to share, and hope you can join us!


Registration info:

$25 before March 24th, $30 on the 24th. If you wish to attend, but finances are an obstacle, please email me (david@pathofsincerity.com) and I’m sure we can work something out!
