Spirit Rock Insight Meditation Center

SE002755small

I’ve been interested in meditation for a long time. Way back in the 60s I got a mantra and practiced, albeit sporadically, a Hindu form of meditation called transcendental. Back in those days such a practice would brand you as counter-culture and weird. Since I was holding down a leadership role in public service I made very sure nobody knew of my practice.

Times have certainly changed since then and last weekend I had the great good fortune of attending a silent retreat at the Insight Meditation Center in Woodacre, California. For 3 intense days we were taught another form of meditation called “Insight”. A practical, powerful and potentially very useful way of making peace with the human condition. 

Here is a link to some of the photographs I took while I was there.

I wholeheartedly recommend the experience.
