The 7th Stage in Your Journey to Liberation

Insight arises in Level 7 of the Journey to Liberation as we deepen our understanding of vipashyana meditation and catch glimpses of the truth that our world appears only in cooperation with the mind. We carry mindfulness and awareness into daily living with the practice of generosity and emotional regulation, creating a new world in the process.

  • Review the advanced, nuanced practice of vipashyana meditation
  • Experience generosity as a skillful action that leads to wisdom
  • Understand what it means to act with ‘enlightened self-interest’
  • Recognize and acknowledge state of mind without attaching to it
  • Drop beyond thoughts and emotions into a more spacious mind
  • Begin to uncover who you really are, beyond your roles and labels

Mindworks practice has helped me to discover space around my thoughts and emotions. I’m also learning to respond thoughtfully and not react habitually. The courses are nicely structured and are presented by a thoughtful, experienced, and diverse team of trainers. Mindworks is a very accessible way to establish, maintain, and deepen your practice.
