   VIPASSANA – BOOTCAMP FOR THE MIND       13th – 15th  OCTOBER 2017

Vipassana means “To see things as they really are”

A Vipassana is one of India’s most ancient techniques of mediation.  This technique has been around for over 2000 years and will give the participant the same benefits today as yesterday, if practiced.  This is an excellent introduction to achieving peace of mind, a happy and productive life and also gives us an insight to eliminating distractions this will encourage us to observe clarity, non-attachment and discipline so we can experience better time management, contentment in our personal lives, health and wellbeing and moving toward reducing stress levels long term. We use physical exercise to tone and develop our physical body, why don’t we use mental exercise to strengthen our minds?

About the Swami Prema Ananda:

Swami Prema Ananda has been involved in Yoga Science for over 30 years. She is a teacher of Traditional Hatha Yoga and Mind Focus Meditations. Over the years she has trained many wonderful yoga teacher and touched the heart and soul of many many students. The first vipassana was such a success Swami Prema Ananda had to turn people away. It was at that point she made the decision to run a Vipassana each year and this  Vipassana will be Swami Prema Ananda’s 16th and we can only hope there will be more to follow.

What has been said in the past:

“I didn’t know what to expect but as the weekend went on I felt this amazing calmness. I can’t explain it but it was mind blowing.  I have book to do the next one.  loved this one, can’t wait for the next one.”

“Swami said it was O.K to laid down, just as well as I would never have made it.  Having said that, the whole weekend was filled with food, beautiful food, outstanding accommodation, information, doing, sitting, eating in silence that is an experience everyone should have, first it was hard but then I loved every minute.  Will do it now at home.”

“The weekend was ran very smoothly, to time every time, Swami Prema Ananda is so knowledgeable and  her method of delivery is unique and memorable.  It was not until a week or so after that I realized my stress levels had dropped, I was not so uptide at work and with the family.  I would highly recommend people to attend at least one Vipassana.  I am looking forward to attending my next one.”
