Awakening insight: the experience and nature of liberating insight in Early Buddhist teachings and contemporary mindfulness-based approaches with Christina Feldman & Chris Cullen
The Buddha’s teachings assert that the alleviation of and liberation from dissatisfaction, distress and suffering most effectively come through transformations of understanding: insights into the ways in which the worlds of self and of suffering are constructed and can be deconstructed moment by moment. This understanding also pervades contemporary mindfulness-based applications such as MBSR and MBCT, and is integral to effective teaching of these programmes.
During this workshop, we will explore the experience, nature and different dimensions of insight within early Buddhist teachings and contemporary mindfulness-based approaches, and how these understandings can be cultivated in practice and progressively embodied. The day will be particularly oriented to mindfulness teachers and those in teacher-training, but it is also open to anyone with an interest in the relationship between contemporary Mindfulness-Based approaches and Early Buddhist psychology and practice
