Rudimentary Insight Practices?
Answer

Hi, I've been meditating off and on for a few years but only begun seriously practicing two and a half months ago.  I think I've developed access concentration - I've reached a state where when I meditate, everything but my breath becomes dulled, and I can often scarcely feel the numbness and tingling from prolonged inactivity at all. 

I'm trying to find a good teacher right now, but in the meantime I'm at a loss for how to proceed with insight meditation.  None of the sources I've read so far(Core Teachings, Vimutimagga, Mindfulness in Plain English, some others) quite explain exactly how to start off with insight meditation.  Could someone give me beginner exercises, or at least point me to someplace where said exercises are described in clear and detailed language?

TIA!
