Item Description

 

On Insight Meditation from Sounds True, you will learn one of the world's great contemplative practices, as it was taught by the Buddha himself and then passed friend to friend for more than 2,600 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 cofounders Sharon Salzberg and Joseph Goldstein, who are among the West's most respected meditation teachers.

Course objectives:

  • Discover and learn to live the principles of mindful living
  • Apply skills to see through delusion, change our karma and fully experience joy
  • Utilize practical techniques for loving yourself and others
  • Design your meditation space and develop a fulfilling daily practice
  • Describe how to make everyday activities a part of your meditative 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.

Students will learn with a qualified meditation instructor how to establish and sustain a daily meditation practice. You will also receive a complete 88-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 is not available anywhere else.

Sounds True was founded in 1985 by Tami Simon with a clear mission: to disseminate spiritual wisdom. Since starting out with one woman and her tape recorder, Sounds True has grown into a multimedia publishing company with a catalog of over 600 titles, including spoken-word audio, audio learning courses, books, interactive learning kits, music, and instructional DVDs. Their offerings feature some of the leading teachers and visionaries of our time and embrace the world's major spiritual traditions, as well as the arts and humanities.

"Our approach to publishing is not dependent on a single format or technology--rather, we strive with every title to preserve the essential 'living wisdom' of the author, artist, or spiritual teacher," says publisher Simon. Sounds True strives to create products that not only provide information to a reader or listener, but that also embody the essential quality of a wisdom transmission between a teacher and a student.

To maintain their integrity as a business and a publisher, Sounds True strives to embody the qualities of consciousness and compassion taught by their authors in the day-to-day business practices and environmental responsibility.
