Chas DiCapua is currently the Insight Meditation Society's Resident Teacher, and has offered meditation since 1998. He is interested in how each person can fully and uniquely manifest the dharma. He teaches regularly at sitting groups and centers close to IMS.
The 4 Wise Efforts and the simile of the correct way for tuning a stringed instrument are used to explore this very important mental factor. Examples are given for how Wise Effort manifests in formal practice as well as in daily life. The simile of how the Buddha crossed the flood is also covered in this talk.
