Insight Meditation

Mediation helps to reduce stress and experience a greater calm. It makes you feel great and improves your health. Insight Meditation is a form of meditation that refers to practices for the mind that develop calm through sustained attention. A fundamental technique for sustaining attention is focusing awareness on the body. It's focused on bodily sensations and mental events, practiced with the intention of gaining insight into reality. Benefits are:

  • Diffuse stress and experience greater calm
  • Explore the mind-body relationship
  • Connect with our feelings
  • Find genuine happiness
  • Discover inner resources that can change our everyday lives
