Insight Meditation: The Practice of Freedom by Joseph Goldstein is a collection of teachings, dharma stories and answers to questions that are commonly asked by students at the Insight Meditation Society in Barre, Massachusetts. Goldstein has a superb talent for being able to get right to the point and convey even potentially tricky ideas in a way that makes them instantly relevant to the reader. The Insight Meditation Center of Pioneer Valley is hosting a Sit-A-Thon fundraiser focused on developing peace and happiness in our hearts and minds. Mindfulness, the practice of being present and aware in the moment, will be the main thread interwoven throughout the Sit-A-Thon's day-long activities including meditation instruction, gentle yoga, mindful walking, and mindful eating.
Serving Western Massachusetts, the Insight Meditation Center of Pioneer Valley is a non-residential meditation center in the Theravadin Buddhist Tradition.

Goldsmith co-founded the IMS in 1975, and has over thirty years’ experience leading Buddhist meditation retreats.
The section titles are fairly self-explanatory (What Is the Path?, How to Practice, Freeing the Mind, Psychology and Dharma, Selflessness, Karma and Practice in the World) but each mini-chapter has its own title which enables you to find exactly the topic you are looking for via the page of Contents.
You can either read through the sections and mini-chapters in the order that they are presented (and if you take this approach we suggest that you proceed slowly so that you can fully digest the content rather than rushing headlong from beginning to end) or you can dip into whatever part you like as and when you wish. This is fantastic as far as ease of reading is concerned, but don’t make the mistake of thinking that just because Insight Meditation is easy to read means that it is also light on content, because it isn’t. Our mission is to share the Buddha's teaching of liberation with all those who are interested and with those who want to sustain and deepen their practice. It is a free application, or you can pay $1.99 for the full version (which I highly recommend).
Our eclectic team of bloggers, stylists, and industry insiders deliver innovative articles to the global fashion citizens of the world. This is a fact that shines through on every page of this book, and whether you are merely curious about vipassana, have attended a retreat or two or have been practicing extensively for years, you will find it very useful to have a copy of Insight Meditation by your side.

We here at Buddhist Book Reviews think that both approaches can be employed quite effectively, with the reader progressing through the title as it is presented the first time and then dipping into sections for second (and third, and fourth) readings in the future. There is plenty of solid material here that could be of great use to your practice for years, so be mindful of that whilst reading if you want to reap the full benefit of this book. The Insight Meditation Center is located at Eastworks, 116 Pleasant Street, Suite 242, in Easthampton, MA. Rebecca finds inspiration in supporting the younger generations of meditators and in encouraging students to approach their practice with balance and gentleness. The fundraiser will help support the Center's many activities, including open sittings, classes and one-day retreats. These include classes in insight meditation, open sittings, drop-in meditation periods, weekly sittings, teen retreats and one-day retreats.
