Vipassana meditation - explore your inner peace

Hiking + Yoga + Meditation in Swiss Alps

Vipassana is a logical gradual process of mental purification through self-observation. It enables a person to bring himself or herself to oneness with nature, through an understanding of how things truly are. Step by step learning about the fundamental reality of things helps to bring a deep understanding to our lives, through embracing the right attitude to life. The highest goal of vipassana, is to be fully liberated from all mental clingings and defilements, and recongnise the intrinsic harmony of nature both within and outside ourselves. The benefits of peace, happiness, calmness and self-control all lead to a more healthy and joyful life. Vipassana in the Buddhist tradition means insight into the true nature of reality. It can be cultivated by the practice that includes contemplation and introspection although primarily awareness and observation of bodily sensations.

Miloslav Dorda learned the Third Eye Vipassana technique from an Indian Swami during his first stay in Dhammapala monastery, Kandersteg December 2010, who helped him to realize that there exists SOMETHING MORE than all drugs. He refined his daily routine during Zen sessions in Felsentor meditation center and practiced with monastics at places such as Amaravati monastery in England.
