A life changing experience ~

This is from my original post in December 2011 after I had completed my first Vipassana 10 day meditation course. I was so inspired by the experience I created a page on my website, which I am now switching over to blogroll format for interest topics.

Vipassana 10 day silent meditation retreat is an incredible experience, and the most effective and transformational meditation technique I have encountered. This pay by donation only course offers an amazing opportunity to explore truth, heal trauma, and attain real peace within. I highly recommend this retreat for everyone. There are 150 centers across the globe. If you are interested in the program in Ontario please visit ~ May all beings be happy ~

“Vipassana, which means to see things as they really are, is one of India’s most ancient techniques of meditation. It was rediscovered by Gotama Buddha more than 2500 years ago and was taught by him as a universal remedy for universal ills.

Vipassana is a way of self-transformation through self-observation. It focuses on the deep interconnection between mind and body, which can be experienced directly by disciplined attention to the physical sensations that form the life of the body, and that continuously interconnect and condition the life of the mind. It is this observation-based, self-exploratory journey to the common root of mind and body that dissolves mental impurity, resulting in a balanced mind full of love and compassion.

The scientific laws that operate one’s thoughts, feelings, judgements and sensations become clear. Through direct experience, the nature of how one grows or regresses, how one produces suffering or frees oneself from suffering is understood. Life becomes characterized by increased awareness, non-delusion, self-control and peace.”
