Mindfulness (Insight) meditation is a particular form of meditation that aims to cultivate wisdom and compassion, so that we can live our lives with less stress and more happiness, ease, and freedom. This type of meditation comes from the Buddhist tradition, though it’s not necessary to be Buddhist to benefit from the practice. The basic forms of insight meditation are very compatible with Western psychology, so these days, variations of mindfulness practices are taught in many different settings, including schools, hospitals, prisons, businesses and government departments.
In this 4 session course, we will practice the 4 arenas of mindfulness of the body, emotions, attitudes and levels of concentration. Allison Ulan will guide us through the stages with the support of traditional techniques and the latest findings from neurology. This course is open to all practitioners from the novice to the experienced meditator.
