2017-01-20 Maximize your Meditation! Attention & Awareness - Friday Evening 1:53:02
A weekend retreat held at NYInsight: Improve your meditation by working with the fundamental components of consciousness – attention and awareness. The distinction between “attention” and “awareness” is rarely discussed but a correct understanding can prove invaluable for your practice. This distinction is hinted at in the canonical literature but has been made explicit by contemporary neuroscience. Learning to work directly with these two distinct “ways of knowing” leads not only to Insight, but to a profound Awakening with ramifications across all scales of being. Come learn techniques to increase the total conscious power of your mind through the optimal use of attention and awareness.
