Join renowned meditation teacher Joseph Goldstein and IMS teacher trainee Jozen Tamori Gibson for two benefit events. Enjoy their meditation guidance and the chance to ask them questions! Everyone is welcome.

Insight meditation (vipassana in Pali, the language of the original Buddhist teachings) is the simple and direct practice of moment-to-moment mindfulness. Through developing the skill of careful observation, we can experience for ourselves the ever-changing flow of the mind/body process. This awareness leads us to accept more fully the pleasure and pain, fear and joy, sadness and happiness that life inevitably brings. As insight deepens, we develop greater equanimity and peace in the face of change, and wisdom and compassion increasingly become the guiding principles of our lives.
