Experience with Vipassana

Post by Matija » Mon Jul 03, 2017 8:07 pm

Hello everyone. Two months ago there was a 10-day Vipassana meditation course held in Slovenia. Having had a life changing experience, I finally wrote my experience down on paper and hope that it reaches many potential new students who are thinking of attending a course.

That is a well structured video, definitely worth for potential students to check out. It'd be great to hear the story about the out of body experience that her husband had.

Thanks for sharing your experience- well-written and quite funny at times!

Now there are many Q&A talks of Goenkaji available on youtube- check them out if you wish; sometimes it helps clear out doubts, other times it gives inspiration to continue practicing!

May you find great peace and happiness!
