The profound techniques of Vipassana (or insight meditation) are all rooted in the Satipatthana Sutta, the Buddha's practice-oriented teaching on the four foundations of mindfulness. With Mindfulness, Joseph Goldstein brings listeners a 3-CD program of core teachings and guided practices for "looking directly at the nature of the mind and body, at how suffering is created, and how we can awaken and be free." Designed to complement his book of the same title, as a stand-alone tool for daily practice, or for anyone wanting to go deeper in their experience of mindfulness, this profound series of meditations explores:
Mindfulness of the Body - the first of the four primary ways we establish mindfulness
Mindfulness of Feelings - how the experience of our feelings conditions reactions in the mind and actions in the world
Mindfulness of Mind - exploring skillful and unskillful states of mind and thought
Mindfulness of Dhammas - working directly with our moment-to-moment experiences in all their variety and texture.
The best way to understand mindfulness is through experience. Through a series of progressive guided meditations, Mindfulness will support practitioners of any level in opening to its transformative powers.
