This is the first in a series of talks on the foundations of insight meditation. Even if we have been practicing for many years, do we know or remember the basis of the techniques that we practice. Whether you are a beginner or an experienced meditator this review will be helpful.

We will explore questions such as:

What does mindfulness have to do with living life?

What are its core characteristics and foundations?

How do we live in the moment without resistance?

What are a few of the obstacles to meditation, what to do about them?

What do we do with thoughts or an active mind?

How do we bring compassion into our practice and our lives?
