This course is composed from seven two hour online sessions, once a week (a total of 14 hours).
The course is open to anyone interested in learning and practicing meditation. The only (yet, so important) commitment required from participants is to attend all sessions, and to commit to a daily practice at home during the course (the length increases gradually from 10 to 30 minutes with the progression of the course). This commitment is crucial for effectively integrating the practice in one’s personal life.
Participants will get a kit with several guided meditation recordings, in various lengths (from 10 to 30 minutes) with gradual mediation instructions, to support their practice during and after the course.
Participants will also get the recordings of the actual meditation sessions.
On Insight Meditation
Insight meditation, as its offspring mindfulness, is one of the most scientifically researched practice these days. Scientists today have realized what was known to meditation practitioners for centuries: meditation has a vast positive impact on many aspects of our lives and wellbeing.
The practice of meditation helps:
- effectively reduce stress and foster calm
- cope with uncertainties
- increase focus and mental clarity
- enhance personal (and team) performance
- build resilience and balance
- enhance creativity
- develop the ability to really listen and be attentive to oneself and others
- increase kindness and compassion
These aspects will be discussed and presented during the course. However, this course is not an academic one and is not intended to supply theoretical knowledge. But rather… to enable participants to experience the effects of Insight Meditation in a direct way, coming from their own individual experience.
