We teach and practice a type of meditation known as Mahasati (“great awareness” in Pali) meditation. It is a form of Vipassana (Insight) meditation that originated in Southeast Asia.
Mahasati meditation cultivates self-awareness through attention to the body’s movement while also observing the actions of the mind in the present moment. This ultimately leads to a direct and profound understanding of the origins of suffering in human experience and points toward ultimate liberation.
While Mahasati meditation has its roots in Buddhism, it is unnecessary to accept any religious doctrine to practice. Also, no rituals are associated with this teaching, making it easy to practice conjointly with any other spiritual practice.
