Vippasna retreatThe Vedansha Insitute of Vedic sciences and alternative medicine is accredeted by International Yoga Alliance (USA) and Alternative medical council Colcatta (India) and offered Vipassana (silent meditation retreat).

This course is suitable for:

  • Intermediate & advanced students.
  • For people who have experience in meditation.

What is vipassana?

The main practice of Vipassana consists of mentally scanning one by one of each body part and feeling the sensations in each of these body parts. Practitioners are instructed to move their attention down from the top of the head to the tips of the toes and then in the opposite direction in a repetitive pattern, paying attention to somatic sensations.

The instruction for the subject is to keep your attention moving and to observe, objectively and with equanimity, the sensations that you experience. Given the explicit focus on somatosensory sensations, this particular tradition of Vipassana is a good example of meditation practice where focused attention and open monitoring are combined.

Please note that Vipassana is a self-practice with guided consultation. Vedansha Institute of Vedic Science and Alternative Medicine will explain and show how to do the practice that you will perform yourself. Only by this way you can concentrate more on your own emotions, sensations, and feeling without external influence. Don’t worry, they will support you in this way.

How you will do your practice?

You will get instructions for whole your retreat in written form (approx. 5 pages) . Before your practice will start we will explain you what you should do and how. We will support and guide you during whole program.
