The how/what/why of Insight Meditation anyone?
« on: February 16, 2013, 09:08:51 AM »
Does anyone know anything about or have any experience with Insight Meditation?  There is a place I could go locally to try this out - but I'm having a hard time finding out exactly what it is.

Thanks!

It appears to be a "pop" term for Vipassana meditation. According to Wikipedia, it has gained popularity in the U.S., and in that iteration it may best be understood by researching the Vipassana Movement, not the basic term alone.
