Pema Chodron teaches that "...we don't sit in Meditation to become good Meditators. We sit in Meditation so that we'll be more aware in our lives." We practice Meditation to get to know the person with whom we spend every day of our life. The basic practice involves the development of three core components: Concentration, Mindfulness, and Insight. Each of these three components is interrelated. Concentration and Mindfulness are used to cultivate a deepening attention, which then facilitates the realization of Insight.
