Although I have been fortunate to have been touched by teachers in my life, I currently do not have the luxury of such individual guidance. Through the miracle of the internet and the generosity of the Insight Meditation Center, I have found access to retreats, talks, discussions, guided meditation instructions--all free of charge and accessible-almost in real time. If you have ever been curious about the teachings of the Buddha, here is a way to explore them at your own pace and in the privacy of your home. I think you will find what I have--that this is not a 'religion'; that the teachings are a way to help us deal with suffering in our daily life; and that Gil Fronsdal and Andrea Fella bring to us wisdom, humor, and encouragement as we move along the sometimes complicated places our lives lead us to.
By listening to these recordings you will discover the reasons the practice of mindfulness brings such richness to our lives--Gil and Andrea help move the practice from one that takes place sitting on a cushion to one that is incorporated into the fabric of our lives. They are contemporary teachers and I am forever in their debt. I hope you find the value that I have found through their teachings.
