Excerpt
 
Welcome to Insight Meditation.  The compact discs and workbook will take you step by step through a comprehensive training course in basic meditation.  The cards included in the box list various helpful teachings that are explored throughout this workbook.
This course is rooted in the Buddhist style of vipassana, or insight meditation, but these fundamental techniques for sharpening your awareness and releasing painful mental habits are useful no matter what your religious or spiritual orientation.
It’s not necessary to affiliate with any belief system in order to benefit from Insight Meditation.  These mindfulness practices can support your existing spiritual path, whether it’s a structured practice like Christianity or Judaism, or simply a personal sense of your relationship with the great questions of human existence.
What to Expect:
Insight Meditation comprises two compact discs, a workbook, and a set of informational cards.

The workbook contains:
  • Information on meditation resources
  • Suggestions for setting up a meditation space and a daily practice
  • Buddhist teachings about meditation and life
  • Q & A sessions that clarify practical new issues new meditators tend to encounter
  • Exercises to help you deepen your understanding and experience of meditation (and space to respond to them)
  • Tips for taking your meditative awareness into the world and for troubleshooting problem areas in your practice
  • Glossaries of Pali, Sanskrit, and other terms
  • A list of books and tapes you can use to further your study of meditation.
