Vipassanā or insight meditation is the source of all mindfulness practices. It originates from early Buddhism as a means for overcoming the common causes of suffering. With a modest daily practice of this technique, the practitioner gradually develops insights that result in inner peace, stability and tranquility.

Mettā or compassion based meditation is a widely studied technique that can not only result in better relationships, but also can help with sleep, mood elevation, outlook on life and increasing gray matter in key areas of the brain. In this 4-week session we will explore 3 different ways to cultivate compassion and kindness for all beings.
