Introduction to Vipassana Meditation Continues!
9/10 and 9/24
7:00 - 8:00pm
Vipassana can be translated as “Insight,” a clear awareness of exactly what is happening as it happens. In Vipassana mediation, the meditator uses his concentration as a tool by which his awareness can chip away at the wall of illusion that cuts him off from the living light of reality. It is a gradual process of ever-increasing awareness into the inner workings of reality itself.
