Silent Vipassana Meditation

awakening-676383_960_720

 

 

Sept. 14th 6:00 pm – 9:00 pm Silent Vipassana Meditation

I am not going to sugar- coat this, it’s hard, but it’s doable. Even if you’re terrified, even if you have no interest in being a monk and you’re not an extremist by nature, I know that sitting in silence for a few hours will challenge your mind. This will take a beginner from point A (in my case kicking and screaming) to point B (meditating in a very healing, purifying way) .You can sit, move around, take a walk outside, but no verbal communication , no phones , no exercise ( walking is fine) ,no reading or journaling.
Agenda:
6:00 pm Greeting and Question Time
6:15 pm – 7:15 pm Meditate
7:15 pm Snack
7:45 pm – 8:45 pm Meditate
8:45 pm Reflection and Question Time“One can have no smaller or greater mastery than mastery of oneself.” — Leonardo da VinciContact Connie 217-620-3306Fee- 10.00
