Vipassana Insight Meditation

9-day Silent Meditation Retreat with Dr. Julia Harfensteller
at Das Buddhistische Haus Berlin-Frohnau, August 19-28, 2022


JH Portrait content

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.
The emphasis is placed on practicing continuity in awareness in everything we do based on an open and accepting attitude towards us and our experience. The retreat includes guided meditations, periods of non-guided practice, Dharma sharings by the teacher and group discussions. The retreat is suitable for both new and experienced practitioners.
Course language: English and German
