About Vipassana Meditation Desert Retreat
Vipassana is a Pali word which means: seeing clearly, seeing through, seeing in a special way. Vipassana means introspection, intuitive wisdom, and intuitive knowledge. Vipassana is often translated as insight.
In a Vipassana retreat the practitioner is experiencing continuously and uninterruptedly body and mind while practicing walking, sitting, lying down, eating, bathing and all other daily activities. The practice will raise his awareness, intuitive wisdom, reveal the truths of existence to him and would free him from the tangle of ignorance.
Vipassana is based on the Four Satipatthana, the Four Foundations of Mindfulness. That is to say, Insight is realized by the consistent and progressive application of the Four Foundations of Mindfulness: Mindfulness of the Body, Mindfulness of Feelings, Mindfulness of the Mind, and Mindfulness of the Mind Objects.
This is a profound healing experience that allows a deep understanding of the secrets of life, aiming to liberate from misconceptions and suffering and awakening to true nature.
The retreat takes place under conditions that allow silence and solitude, so that everyone can meet their selves without external interference.

The retreat is based on the teaching of the great Burmese Vipassana teacher Mahasi Sayadow and the great Thai teacher Ajarn Tong Sirimangalo – The Sixteen Stages of Insight.
