Spent two 10 day retreats at this center, one in August '19 and one in January '20. Very consistent, excellent experience being there, would absolutely want to take a third there; truly eye opening. ***NOTE: I had been practicing Mindfulness based stress-reduction meditations for 3 years before I discovered and took this course, having spent 15--30 minutes almost daily in a cross-legged meditation posture. I took a 200H Yoga Teacher Training Course so I could learn how to develop a yoga routine that would make my sitting posture more comfortable, due to limited flexibility in hip/knee joints (with a history of numerous athletic injuries to both). Having prepared myself physically over 8 months for a better meditative posture, I was able to make it through the 10H/day x 10 days of meditation. I personally would not have been able to make it the whole 10 days without my meditation/yoga background, however, numerous people with no meditative or yoga background whatsoever complete the 10 day course.
It would be difficult not to come away with a deeper understanding of yourself and the reality you perceive, an experience like this is so unique and invaluable.
Coming prepared with proper clothing etc. will be very helpful, there are some short but nice nature walking trails that help if meditating indoors silently becomes intolerable. Following the instructions will absolutely help you get the most out of your time there and the meditation technique. So much of what is happening during the course was in my thoughts, engaging in the technique manages this well. Posture can be challenging if you are unfamiliar with meditation postures, they do offer chairs, but I think without long term practice almost any posture will get uncomfortable at some point. May all beings be happy!
I have gone to vipassana about 3x in my life and every time I go I find myself developing an better understanding of presence with their meditation practices. Everyone should go in this life time and gain their own experiences and perspectives.This practice is for everyone. I can not tell you how you will feel nor you should take my advice with a grain of salt it is to gain your own experience and understanding.
Spending 8 months at Sutton as server to thousands coming free of cost to get the teachings of Goenkji.
No one left after 12 days with sad sorry face.
Vipassana Meditation practice continues on and is the tool box that carries all other smaller and needful tools. No sectarian no conversion from one religion to another or goings on. Cooking Ital food and special food so all can apply to attend .Be accepted finish the course.Happiness.
Great spot. It is free (donations) so there is not much to lose. The food is very good and healthy. The bed and accommodations do the job. Very good experience.
