About the Event

The Gradual Path to Freedom & Happiness: The Theory and Practice of Insight Meditation
Grounded in the cumulative insights of the gradual path and the method of insight meditation, the third class of the Four Year Program surveys the three fold journey of contemplative life taught in the Nalanda tradition.This unique format covers everything you need to know about contemplative life, a step at a time, gradually unpacking the insights of self-healing, altruism and inspiration along with the methods of mindfulness, mind-clearing and role-modeling practice.The focus here is on understanding how this powerful system of reflective learning maps our journey from compulsion to freedom and shared happiness in ways that help us make tangible progress through gradual growth and life-change. As for practice, the course guides students through the five step practice of insight meditation outlined in the Nalanda tradition: discursive learning, analytic reflection, positive motivation, focused contemplation, and practical application. The focus here is on the way deep mindfulness matures into combined insight and quiescence, which allows the integration of cognitive, emotional and behavioral learning and change. Since this is an introductory class, newcomers are welcome.
