This five-week class will offer an introduction to the Buddha’s teachings on meditation. We will practice both insight and lovingkindness meditation and discuss practical ways to establish a home practice. We will also explore ways to bring mindful awareness “off the cushion” and into everyday life. To help integrate the material, there will be suggestions for practice during the week between sessions. This class is designed especially for people who are new to meditation or who desire a review of the foundational principles and practices. The class will be held on Zoom.
Candace Cassin has been practicing Insight Meditation since 1983, and teaching at IWM since
2008. Her personal practice and teaching approach are rooted in the
classical teachings, and she is especially interested in the integration
of insight, wisdom, and compassion in everyday life, both on the
personal and social levels. In her former incarnations she worked in the
disability field and as a hospice chaplain.
