Vipassana has as its goal the ability to change your heart and mind. It puts you on a path, a way of life that is healthy for body, mind, and spirit. From the healthy way of life, both physical and mental health benefits may flow. But the goal is not any specific physical health or mental health 'fix', but a path of life itself.
How one learns to follow the path - and what else begins to happen - is the focus of these public talks given in 2007 by Paul Fleischman in Europe in America, and now finally collected together in one audiobook.
These talks, in Boston, Freiberg, Madrid, Vienna, Dublin, and Ghent, mainly to medical professionals and academics, were recorded and transcribed, and are presented in this collection along with several question and answer sessions and a clarification for mindfulness in the context of Vipassana meditation.
Author and psychiatrist Paul Fleischman gave these talks in Europe and America in 2007. He gave them to various audiences, and the nature of each audience partly shaped the contents of each talk. For example the Boston talk was to mental health professionals in the USA, and the Freiberg talk was to researchers in Germany. The content of the talks reflect those circumstances. Several question and answer sessions are included.
