Discover the benefits of insight meditation in this comprehensive six-week course, led by two highly-experienced meditation teachers, Jill Shepherd and Sue Dykes.

Insight meditation uses mindfulness to develop more steadiness and calm, so that we can see some common thought-patterns that create stress and distress, and learn how to help those patterns release. As a result of that deeper self-understanding, we can live with more ease, happiness and peace.

Jill Shepherd is the founder and guiding teacher of Auckland Insight Meditation. Jill is an internationally-trained insight meditation teacher who has lived and worked at several meditation centres and monasteries in the US, Australia, England, and Thailand since 1999.

Sue Dykes is a Clinical Psychologist and previous Director of Mindfulness Auckland, where she taught Mindfulness- Based Stress Reduction courses for many years.

Over six consecutive Wednesday evening meetings, we will explore some of the key techniques of insight meditation. Topics covered will include:
- Mindfulness of the body, including sitting postures and walking meditation
- Mindfulness of thoughts and emotions, including methods to reduce afflictive thought patterns and strengthen beneficial ones
- Mindfulness in daily life, including mindful speaking and listening
- Practices for cultivating kindness, compassion and self-compassion.

Cost for all six sessions: $60 plus donation,* or for people experiencing financial stress, $30 plus donation.
