What is Vipassana Meditation?

Vipassana (Insight) Meditation is the heart of the Buddha’s Teachings –– a practice of awareness that leads us beyond the confines of our ordinary psychology to the freedom and clarity of our essential nature. There is no element of religion in this practice. It is a scientific investigation and examination of ourselves.
