With no outside to distract you, see what is possible when all your energy is used only for awareness.
Through awareness of the breath, we can watch, without getting involved, as our mind’s dramas slow down. Our thinking process settles when we withdraw our attention and involvement with it. Vipassana is known as an insight meditation.An insight is an understanding that can happen, not through thinking about something, but through giving the thinking process a rest – that is meditation.Osho Neo-Vipassana is watching the breath, as in traditional Vipassana, but the difference is we include Osho Gibberish Meditation and Osho Kundalini Meditation. These active meditations are a support for the silent sitting.
You will be in silence for the whole retreat but with an opportunity each day for an individual talk, if you wish to share with Shunyo what is happening for you. Vipassana is not only a way to relax and rest from the chatteringmind for a few days but it is also a deep cleansing that gives space for insights to happen.It is a way to discover who you are and to deepen your understanding of how your mind works, whilsttaking distance from it.
It is also a meditation for the market place. Once we learn the knack of bringingour consciousness to the present moment, via the breath, then it can be remembered any time of theday as a way to relax into yourself, with a loving, non-judgemental attitude.
This retreat is open for all people with different experiences of silent meditation. Vipassana is ‘advanced’ as far as meditation goes, but many times people come who are trying this method for the first time and they are rewarded immensely.
