True Path Consulting ~ Unit 1A
Vipassana ~ Honouring Noble Silence
Vipassana; 3rd Friday monthly from 1pm-3pm EST, with optional 1-hour discussion group 3pm-4pm EST
English: insight, clear-seeing
Sanskrit: विपश्यना; (vipaśyanā)
This session is a karma class – although there is no fee, we ask that you bring an offering for the local food bank in exchange for the space being held. At the end of the noble silence we will offer space and time for discussion or sharing.
Vipassana is a Buddhist practice of honouring the noble silence of True Self – Soul & Ego in harmony as one from within the body. It is both Physical and Spiritual in nature.
Like any meditation technique, the purpose of Vipassana is to create awareness. Awareness of the deep mind or deep consciousness, practice of choice-less observation through maintaining a state of equanimity through the experiences in the practice itself.
In this 2-hour session, we will NOT be in a traditional state of Vipassana where there is no movement of the body or mind. For this day, it matters not whether you choose to keep your eyes open (outer awareness) or closed (inner awareness). It matters not if you are in traditional meditation, journaling or moving through asanas (yoga poses). All that matters is you are honouring noble silence in order to create awareness.
This practice is not as easy as it sounds so please give it and yourself a chance. You are welcome to leave anytime… however, the benefits of sticking it out are worth it.
