When you seek to live a spiritual life, what matters most is not what you know, but the actions you take. How do you best embody the spiritual principles that uplift you and those whose lives you touch? On Insight Meditation, you will learn one of the world's great contemplative practices, as it was taught by the Buddha himself and then passed "candle to candle" for over 2,500 years.

Based on the curriculum developed at the Insight Meditation Society's retreat center in Barre, Massachusetts, this audio correspondence course is presented by IMS co-founders Sharon Salzberg and Joseph Goldstein, who are among the West's most respected meditation teachers. Students will learn with a qualified meditation instructor how to establish and sustain a daily meditation practice. As each lesson unfolds and the principles of mindful living are revealed, students learn to see past the illusion of life's obstacles and move toward an awakened mind state - the true freedom we seek to achieve. Now you can experience this rich and sacred retreat environment in your own home, with these same masterful instructors.

You will receive a complete 90-page workbook created expressly for the Insight Meditation course. Organized to accompany the audio curriculum, your workbook features exercises that you complete and return to your insight meditation instructor. Easy to follow and a pleasure to learn from, this unique resource comes with your 24 CDs - it is available nowhere else. Over 17 hours of personal instruction in daily meditation practice.
