Vipassana

Hi all;
Came across this on my look-abouts.

Amidst all of the madness it is sometimes hard to find that place within, as I have found. For anyone interested in having time out to find themselves, this sounds good to me.

Although their timetable seems strict, I believe this could help; after all, it is only 10 days, and the whole thing is free so got to be worth a look.

:love: and :peace:

Hmmm ... interesting.

The first step is, for the period of the course, to abstain from killing, stealing, sexual activity, speaking falsely, and intoxicants. This simple code of moral conduct serves to calm the mind, which otherwise would be too agitated to perform the task of self-observation.

That's me, anyway.

If you want an effective tool for calming the mind then it doesn't get any better than audio visual entrainment technology; it works wonders for me - here is a link for more information - http://mymindspa.eu

Its not £350 - the price is in dollars. Its something that helps people with studying, depression, ADD, ADHD, and is a reliable alternative to pharmaceutical drugs.

It also gets you results far quicker than any meditation practice and is more enriching for the brain. There is much research supporting it and in my mind the benefits justify the price!

Having spent 3 months in a Buddhist Monastery I can truly say I found it most enlightening experience and live by that experience/enlightenment the best I can :hug:
