Introduction to Meditation, Session #5: De-Confining the Heart (While Staying Home) with Pascal Auclair
For thousands of years, people have used meditation as a way to remain anchored and steady amid life's chaos and uncertainty. In just one hour per day, this course will explore, in words and practices, the different aspects of meditative presence: mindfulness of body, of mind, heart, thoughts. From the comfort of home, you will discover how mindfulness can help you: be with things as they truly are; be balanced in meeting your experiences, good and bad; and resonate with life, however changing, fragile, precious and unstable it may be.
Cost is sliding scale and scholarships are available. Registration fees support the Insight Meditation Society’s work online and at our physical retreat centers in Barre, MA.
A note on dana (generosity)
Most IMS teachers—like insight teachers around the world—rely on the generosity of students for their livelihood, and receive no compensation from course fees. All IMS online teachers receive a modest dana advance from IMS to guarantee a minimum level of financial support. (Click here to learn more about the dana practice.)
