Check Out of Society & Check Into 10 Days of Silence...

I was just inspired by a friend  who has started leading meditation workshops in Vancouver.


However I realized that 99.99 percent of the worlds population does  not live Van to attend my friends wicked workshops but may also be interested in mediation programs & retreat centers in their areas, so I wanted to share a great world wide meditation retreat resource that I have experienced first hand in a few different places around the world that was absolutely amazing...

Out all the personal development conferences, coaching programs & seminars I have done, this was the ultimate 'self mastery' experience:

Its called "Vipassana" www.dhamma.org

Its a 10 day silent meditation retreat.

Here is a video I took in 2008 after my 10 days of silence, and I could finally talk again


 
Imagine, 10 days of not only "no talking", but no cell phones, no computers, no writing, no reading and even no touching & no eye contact is a rule.

Its hardcore.

And yes, its freaking intense.

Here is a blog post I did after my 1st retreat :

A lot of people have breakdowns, freak outs and leave the center before the 10 days is over...but a lot also stay to complete it, and in return get a ton of value and breakthroughs from it (like I did).


Its an awesome grounding and stimulating sense of self & serenity that is created in that silent space, that is so rare and pretty much non existent in our busy, loud and active business centered society.

BTW it's not connected to any specific religion and its non profit donation run organization by people who attend their retreats.

I call Vipassana "the ultimate vacation" :)

So if you ever get (or create), 10 days of no commitments or schedules, I highly recommend checking in, and checking out of society for 10 days of silence and enjoy a intensive meditation retreat.

I think every one should try it once in their life, so put it on your Bucketlist and lemme know how it goes...

Warning / Disclaimer: You'll probably go through cell phone & internet withdraw and need to detox for the first couple days, but after the nightmares, cold sweats & shakes are over, its totally worth it ;-)
