Here’s a little exercise to facilitate the type of meditation that’s referred to as vipassana, or insight meditation. It involves paying close, non-judgmental attention to the nature of experience.

The metaphor I use is one of placidly witnessing an oceanscape from the underwater observatory of a boat or submarine. In the same way that you’d be content to simply watch as scenes slide in and out of your viewport, the object of vipassana meditation is to witness without giving in to the habits of resistance and attachment.
