Vipassana Retreat: Introduction to Insight Meditation

Zoom

Join Namchak Khen Rinpoche for an intimate online meditation retreat focusing on a practice that will help clear your filter and get to the essence of your true self.

If mindfulness meditation (or Shamata) is like mowing down the weeds as they crop up in our minds, we can use insight meditation (Vipassana) to pull them out by the roots.

We do this by penetrating through the appearances of things, to the essential nature of the outer world we’re perceiving, and the essential nature of the perceiver—ourselves.
