10 Days of Silent Meditation
In this video I share insights from my experience at a recent 10-day Vipassana course/retreat as well as some of the functional changes that occur in the brain. This was one of the most impacting retreats I have been to among the various types of retreats and immersions I have visited over the years (and it was free, or donation-based). It helped me set the foundation for further development by increased meditative stability—meaning, the ability to remain aware and equanimous across all experience without reaction. This is no easy task and remains a work in progress, but 100 hours of mediation in 10 days results in changes to the brain that can remain with continued and consistent practice.
