Over its 34-year history, the Insight Meditation Society (IMS) in Barre, Massachusetts, has become a spiritual home to thousands and is now among the most respected centers for learning and deepening meditation practice. Based on curriculum first developed at IMS, the Insight Meditation online course invites you to experience one of history’s great contemplative practices as it was taught by the Buddha himself, then passed friend to friend for more than 2,500 years.

 

This self-paced course was originally presented in a 12-week, intensive online learning program highlighted by live audio-learning sessions with IMS cofounders Sharon Salzberg and Joseph Goldstein. Our on-demand edition brings you these sessions as they happened, with an additional 17 hours of audio instruction and online workbook material with exercises, articles, and private journaling.

 

Course objectives:

  • Discuss and practice the power of mindfulness and bare attention within meditation and everyday life.
  • Define and discuss the five precepts, the five hindrances, the eight conditions of life, the three kinds of suffering, and the five spiritual powers as taught by the Buddha and explored within Insight Meditation.
  • Integrate an understanding of karma, faith, wisdom, and lovingkindness within meditation practices and everyday life.
  • Practice basic instructions for sitting, walking, and eating meditations.
  • Practice guided meditations related to intentions, feelings, emotions, thoughts and images.
