I always thought that satori when achieved occurs suddenly and without warning. However sometimes I have the feeling I am slowly gaining insight in satori with life experience and spiritual wisdom. So does satori always come instantly or can it also come gradually, step by step?

That wisdom which appears gradually is called "judging wisdom". In order to purify your mind, it does take time. Yet when that purification has happened, that moment of awakening to one´s original wisdom happens in an instant. Awareness become awareness, which does not happen gradually.
