4 Lessons from 10 Days of Silent Meditation

I first heard about Vipassana from people who had completed the course who described their experience as ‘life changing’

This sparked my curiosity so I did some research, came across an interesting TED talk by Anjali Kumar on it and without too much thought, reserved my spot at the closest centre to Auckland

Every day for ten days I had to wake up at 4am, meditate for ten hours, eat only two vegetarian meals, abstain from communicating with anyone (that includes smiling and eye contact) and go without a phone, music, books, not even a pen This may all sound slightly draconian, however it’s all an integral part of the meditation practice

After completing the course, I regard it as one of the most profound experiences I’ve gone through
