IMPORTANT UPDATE - FEB 3rd : Sincere apologies for the system anomalies going on over January. We are now completing a whole system/server upgrade. This will be a big change in the look and feel of Lightworkers, however all content has been migrated to the new server and we will have a data Roll Back to Jan 11th 2016. Any data entered after this date will be lost, which is a shame but its been a very big job. Please make copies of any content you wish to keep and re-post to the new system when we go live. Target for launch is Feb 10th with ongoing development over Feb/March. The new server will be more stable, and up to date. With new and improved functionality, mobile compatible and more. Thank you for your continued support and sorry again for the inconvenience.

Yes, here it is; the technique we've all been waiting for, Vipassana. I took my first Vipassana Course in April/May of 2009, it was challenging, enjoyable and rewarding. However, it wasn't until 6 months later looking back on how happy I was becoming that I was able to recognize the turning point. The Meditation Retreat. I decided to go back, which I did just this Sept/Oct and was so blown away by the confirmation that I decided to fully commit to the technique. Now that I have realized what dhamma has done for me, I just want to share it with the world! Hence this blog, other than telling my friends and family I wish to bring it to the attention of the light family. If even one person reads this and looks into it, then I will be very pleased.

May all people be free from misery. May they enjoy real peace, real harmony, real happiness. :)

What is Vipassana?

Let's start with what Vipassana is not:
It is nota rite or ritual based on blind faith.
It is neither an intellectual nor a philosophical entertainment.
It is not a rest cure, holiday or an opportunity for socializing.
It is not an escape from the trials and tribulations of everyday life.

What Vipassana is:
It is a technique to eradicate suffering.
It is a method of mental purification which allows one to face life's tensions and problems in a calm balanced way.
It is an art of living that one can use to make positive contributions to themselves and society.

For 10 days a student agrees to follow the morality precepts, maintain noble silence, and meditate diligently as instructed. It is not a vacation, it is for those who are willing to work to purify their mind of negativities. The first 3 days are mental conditioning in which a student learns to practice Anapana, a technique to concentrate the mind. On the 4th day students get their first taste of vipassana which they work patiently on for the rest of the duration of the course. On the 10th day students learn mettapana.

For anyone with any questions about how the technique works, or about the course, or anything at all please ask! This technique has helped me so much, done me so much good, I just want to share it with the world! So many wonderful benefits. :)
