Vipassana Negative Experiences: Everything you need to know

“Peace is to be found within oneself, where suffering is also to be found. It is not found in a forest or on a hill, nor is it given by a teacher. Where one experiences suffering, one can also find freedom from suffering.”‘ Trying to run away from suffering is really running towards it.”

-Ajahn Chah

10 days vs 2 days Vipassana Retreat

Are you interested in Vipassana meditation but hesitant to commit to a 10-day retreat? Our 2-day intensive Vipassana retreat could be just the thing for you!

Our retreat is designed to provide a lighter and more direct introduction to Vipassana meditation, while still allowing for a deep and transformative experience. Led by an extremely caring and experienced team, you can be confident that you will be supported every step of the way.

Although some people have had negative experiences with longer Vipassana retreats, we believe our shorter, more focused retreat is the perfect introduction.

So why not take the first step towards a deeper understanding of yourself and the world around you? Join our 3-day intensive Vipassana retreat and discover the transformative power of this ancient meditation technique.

Vipassana dangerous?

Vipassana meditation in itself is not dangerous. It is a proven practice that has been practised for thousands of years and has helped many people gain a deeper understanding of themselves and the world around them.

Overall, Vipassana meditation is a safe and effective method to improve mental health, increase concentration and achieve mental clarity.

Safe and effective: reaping the benefits of Vipassana meditation

“The rain has stopped, the clouds have cleared,
the weather is clear again.
When your heart is purified,
all things in your world are purified.
Let this fleeting world be, let yourself be.
Then the moon and the flowers
Will accompany you on the great path.”

“Where there is beauty, ugliness also comes forth.
Where there is right, wrong also comes forth.
‘Wisdom’ and ‘ignorance’ are interdependent,
Illusion and enlightenment are inseparable.
This is an old truth.
‘I want this, I want that’ is nothing but folly.
I tell you a secret:
‘All things are impermanent!”

Zen master and poet Ryôkan (Japan, 18th century)
