In the course you will learn how to cultivate mindfulness, and how to apply mindfulness in your daily life. The program includes stillness or focus meditation (shamatha) and insight meditation (vipashyana). The first five sessions is about cultivating a mind that is focused, relaxed and at easy. This is called focus or shamatha. In a world of crazy distractions and scattered this is more important than ever. The last three sessions is about using the mindfulness we have cultivated to understand our own thoughts, mental habits, reactions and emotions better. In order for us to live happy, peaceful lives where we contribute to our own and other happiness this is necessary. This is called insight or vipashyana.
The program includes nine sessions:
0. Introduction to mindfulness meditation
4. Settling the mind
5. Resting in stillness
