The Three Elements of Insight (Vipassana) Meditation

leave a comment »

In this 2-year old video, meditation teacher Matthew Flickstein explains the three key elements of  Vipassana Meditation:

  • Concentration: There are two forms of concentration (absorption and momentary concentration), insight meditation is concerned mainly with the latter. “Riding the waves of consciousness from moment-to-moment.”
  • Mindfulness: Attention that is free of decision, judgement, and commentary.
  • Clear comprehension: Seeing everything is impermanent and selfless.
