Tomorrow I’m going to Tuscany for my very first 10-day Vipassana Meditation Course, a silent meditation course focusing on the insight into the true nature of reality, which means to see things as they really are, and this silent meditation practice is one of India's most ancient techniques of meditation. It was rediscovered by Gotama Buddha more than 2500 years ago and is now taught worldwide in special Vipassana Centers. No mobile phone, laptop, radio, TV, books, music, magazines, yoga or writing material is allowed and instead this silent meditation practice stretches our minds to confront our own experiences and all of our deepest thoughts.
I will be fully offline for 10 days - even though my posts here are pre scheduled for the end of the 30 Day Yoga Journey challenge.
Many people wonder how they can start or continue to meditate when there’s so many thoughts in mind and not enough time, but the fact is everyone can cultivate a daily meditation practice. The only thing you need to do is to find a quiet and comfortable space where you can start with only five or ten minutes of meditation everyday. At first it will seem impossible and the mind will not be used to it, but will quickly crave this quiet space you allow your body and mind. It will expand your consciousness, awareness and inner peace and will change your thought patterns, but this is not only something you can feel - it’s neurologically and scientifically proven meditation is beneficial for the mind and body and provides countless valuable and positive aspects in our lives where the ultimate goal is to achieve a mentally clear and emotionally calm state 🙏
