Topics :   Intuitive Awareness

Venerable Vimokkha will give a workshop-style talk to demonstrate a pragmatic approach to arousing pure intuitive awareness with clear knowing and seeing. His simple technique involves looking at what you are doing, watching what you are looking at, and seeing clearly what you are watching. It is so simple! Through this technique, one can cultivate meditation practices and insight both in the formal practice of sitting meditation and in all life’s daily work and activities. It is claimed that with his technique, one can get onto the path for stream entry. Venerable’s guidance is based on breathing meditation, mindfulness immersed throughout the body and emptiness meditation.”
