Dhammadipa provides courses in the practice of vipassana meditation and in abhidhamma, the Buddhist psychology.
We cordially invite you to an introduction in vipassana meditation. This course is for persons who are not yet familiar with the (Buddhist) meditation, but is interested in a clear method to develop insight into their own person.
The basics of the practice of (Buddhist) meditation and the related study of Buddhism are discussed in the course.
Vipassana or insight meditation teaches you to look directly at your own experiences with a clear mind. Central is the development of mindfulness. To be attentive without judgment, without analysis, without expectations. Vipassana teaches you to take off the colored glasses and see things as they really are. Ability to relax and to concentrate are important here.
You in a simple way you practice direct attention. You start to notice thoughts and feelings that may often determine your life. As such, space can arise within yourself.
Vipassana meditation teaches you to live in the here and now. It’s not about getting into a trance or experiencing special mystical experiences. It is also not about solving problems or isolating yourself from the outside world. Vipassana meditation indicates a way to inner freedom, compassion and clear insight into both yourself and the world around you.
