Introduction to Insight Meditation

An Evening Talk

The Liberating Effect of Mindfulness

A Non-Residential Weekend Retreat


The Evening Talk ...
“If you want to understand your mind, sit down and
​observe it.” 

These simple instructions, offered by one of the elders in the western Insight Meditation tradition, point to the power of this ancient form of meditation. Cultivating the concentration, kindness and insight, insight can lead to profound inner healing, transformation and growth. Join meditation teacher and author Oren Jay Sofer for this intimate evening exploring the foundations of this ancient practice. The evening will include a guided meditation, talk and time for questions and answers.

This weekend non-residential retreat provides a valuable opportunity to deepen the skills of awareness and to cultivate an open heart. Together, we will seek balance and freedom within the changing flow of life. You’ll learn the basic tools and principles behind Insight Meditation, andhave an opportunity to deepen your existing meditation practice  Oren will offer guidance in developing attitudes of mind that support relaxation, courageous inquiry, and an authentic encounter with one’s own heart.
