This is a series of talks by Rodney Smith of the Seattle Insight Meditation Society.
The six part series is an introduction to Insight meditation, also known as mindfulness or Vipassana meditation. It aims to free the mind from the distortions of self-centeredness, negativity, and confusion. Seeing life as a constantly changing process, one begins to accept pleasure and pain, fear and joy, and all aspects of life with increasing balance and equanimity. This balanced awareness, grounded in the present moment, leads to stillness and a growing understanding of the nature of life. Out of this seeing emerges wisdom and compassion.
