Meditation

Much has been said and written about meditation yet it takes years to understand its nature. It cannot be taught, just as sleep cannot be taught. One falls into sleep and in the same way, meditation comes by itself. 

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.

This non-sectarian technique aims for the total eradication of mental impurities and the resultant highest happiness of full liberation.

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.

Therefore, if you are interested in joining us in our meditation practice you are very much welcome.

 

The answers you seek never come when the mind is busy; they come when the mind is still.

Buddha

 

Classes

At the first meeting, I will explain how you can work in order to start a good meditation practice, focusing on the breath as the first step. The duration of the meditation classes range between half and one hour and can be joined daily. If you are already a Vipassana meditator, we can do one hour sits.

I invite you to observe silence.
