For beginners and already experienced

Vipassana means insight into the interrelatedness of mind and matter with the aim to understand the fabric of our own personality. Vipassana meditation is an ancient and a hugely empowering hands-on approach which starts from the idea that we can learn and understand how our mind works by simply watching it. And if we understand how our mind works, we can free ourselves from unwholesome habit patterns including stressing ourselves out and pushing us beyond our limits. Along this silent retreat we will cultivate mindful awareness in meditation as well as in daily activities.
