Mindfulness of the Body

Judy continued her exploration of the Mindfulness of the Body section of the Satipatthana Sutta, the foundational Sutta for the practice of insight meditation in all it various forms throughout the world.  She explored how the various Vipassana schools  used the sections on body parts and body elements as the locus of their practices and how these meditations can be used to overcome anger, conceit, desire, and aversion. She concentrated on the use of the body sweep as an insight and purification  practice. This dialogue was designed to expand the practitioner’s “tool kit” of meditation skills beyond breath exercises alone.
