1 Vipassana meditation on Sat Oct 11, 2008 8:02 am

I recently sat my second 10 day Vipassana retreat at Ballina. I always gain alot of insight into the world around me as well as my internal world. I would really like to bring my practice into everyday reality and I am starting with one hour daily. Does anyone else on the forum practice Vipassana meditation? It would be great to share experiences with you. Love n light Sally

sorry no I haven't practiced Vipassana meditation... though I have written an essay on it! lol
I have heard though that they are very strict and there are some school of thought that due to some people going through spiritual emergencies whilst practicing for so long that they should be more flexible in the amount of days people can attend. At the moment though my understanding is that 10 days are really strict in some practices.
Have you witnessed anyone finding it too difficult?

3 Ten days is needed on Mon Nov 24, 2008 8:58 am

I sat the same Vippassana( my first) as Sally and during the course the teacher (Goenke) explains the signifigance of every day within the course. He describes the process as spiritual surgery, and the ten days are required to achieve the full benefit of the meditation. The first few days are spent just trying to get into the headspace and focused and there is also a couple of days at the end dedicated to soothing the spiritual incisions, which Goenke calls the salve.
