Joseph Goldstein is the co-founder of the Insight Meditation Society where he is one of the resident guiding teachers. He is the author of One Dharma: The Emerging Western Buddhism. On this eight-hour audio learning course originally recorded live at the Forest Refuge in Massachusetts, Goldstein presents teachings on the Satipatthana Sutta — a classic text which explains Buddha's direct path to realization.

This workshop on seven CDs offers advanced students of Buddhism the essentials of meditation practice. There is a 32-page study guide with a translation of the Satipatthana Sutta, a glossary of terms, and a bibliography. Some of the topics covered by Goldstein are mindfulness, concentration and contemplation, impermanence, bare knowing, non-clinging, postures, and mediation on parts of the body. Goldstein is a skilled teacher of these meditation practices.
