What is Vipassana?

Vipassana, also known as mindfulness meditation, means to see clearly.

In this style of meditation we train ourself to observe our reality with clarity, concentration and equanimity.

Our untrained way of seeing can be extremely biased by our patterns of reacting and perceiving, colouring our view of the world and creates an unnecessary feeling of struggling through life.

The vipassana technique has been around since the time of the Buddha (450BC) and while traditionally practiced in Buddhist contexts, it is a completely non-religious tool to train our minds just like Yoga.

Benefits of Vipassana

A feeling of ease and peace

Over time, you can change your default state to a feeling of ease and peace rather than always being slightly anxious or existing in a state of chronic urgency, impatience and imperfection.

Improved relationships

You can transform how you relate to others to be more understanding, kind and patient which in turn makes people treat you the same way. Most importantly, you learn to be kinder to yourself.

Improved focus and efficiency

When you learn to direct your mind more intentionally, less energy is wasted on worry, rumination and distraction which naturally gives rise to being more fully present with your task, whether that is exercise, interactions or work.

He has not missed a day of practice since his first retreat and is committed to this practice for the rest of his life.

Vipassana meditation has changed his life for the better. It changed his relationship to himself, to others and to life, feeling more at ease and peace. One of his life purposes is to help share this technique and teach from his own experience.

FAQ

Can I still join the discourses if I am in a different timezone?

The live zoom discourses are designed for an Australian participant (10AM Melbourne on weekends, 7pm Melbourne on Wednesday). All discourses will also be recorded and shared in case you cannot attend the live sessions. There will also be the option to have a European time zone Q&A session.

Can I do this course while in a full-time job?

Yes the course is designed so that you are able to participate.

Guided meditations are shared the day before and you can fit them into your morning and evening routine. Lectures are live and outside of standard working hours. The lectures will also be recorded.

I am worried I am not capable of meditating for two hours everyday. Should I still join?

If you are in reasonable physical and mental health and are sincerely and genuinely interested in trying out this practice, meditation is not difficult. 

It all depends on the commitment you bring to the 10 days and if you are open and willing to apply yourself patiently and diligently, you will surely see tangible benefits

Why do I have to join for the entire 10 days?

Traditionally this technique is taught over 10 days as each day a new step is introduced. To give this technique a fair trial and be able to practice on your own, committing to the full 10 days is highly recommended.

Will I receive any support during the course?

You are free to message the instructor at any time if you need guidance or support or even reach out for 1-on-1. We also organise a Whatsapp group for you to share and connect with other participants. During live sessions, you will also have time for Q&A.

Who is this course for?

This course is for anyone who wants to be introduced to Vipassana meditation or go deeper into their practice. Not everyone has time or opportunity to attend a full 10 day Vipassana course, especially now with centers closed due to COVID.

This is a beginner friendly course. If you have never meditated before, have had a casual relationship with meditation or have even attended a vipassana retreat but want to stabilise and reinvigorate your daily practice, this course is for you.

Where do donations go?

Offering our courses for free allows us to pass on the Vipassana teachings to those who need it, whatever position they are in. Donations go towards operational costs and to help support the teacher.
