What is the relationship between mindfulness (Sati) and Insight (Vipassana)? In this day of practice, we will explore the factors of mindfulness and the practice of investigation and how these efforts lead to both insight and tranquility.

What are we talking about when we speak of insights in the meditative context? A strong key is found in the Seven Factors of Awakening which starts with Mindfulness. The teaching on the Seven Factors is a key to our own individual awakening and consequently the awakening of the society we are part of.

In this Daylong, we will explore the concept of meditation, how it leads to insight and what concepts support us in our meditation practice. This program is open to meditators of all levels.
