About This Event

Vipassana is precious time that we give to our SELF. Allowing the attention to shift from the world to our nature as pure aware silence. Simply sitting and being awareness itself. Vipassana is not ‘doing,’ it is allowing. Allowing the mind to quiet down and let our silent nature surface. When this happens we rest into an awakened silence.

As a device to observe the mind, we shift our attention to the breathing flow. If something else takes our attention we allow it to be until it is gone and we return to the stillness which is naturally there underneath it all. There is no need to ‘do’ the watching, just connecting to this quality which is already there. The work is the intention and the stillness. The rest happens by itself.

      Not enough food

    I read on the page of the Pachamama community that they are welcoming people who work for them and in exchange they get food and a place to put their tent for free. Imagine you make your way through the forest into this community and start to trust. As a worker, you work for some hours. That's nice. And in the evening you are surrounded by all the others. You all share silence for some time. But as soon as the bell rings people jump up. To be explicit: the workers jump up in a very rushed way. To hurry up for being the first in the line. Workers get soup and rice. That's fine. Imagine you are taking your time after the sound of the bell. And imagine there is no soup left because you were not fast enough to reach the dining room. The reason why I visited this place is because I trust that I am entering a place where people truly care and even more live it. I let my review in a short version. I wrote for you who is not interested in falling into a trap. I wrote for the people who are truly connected to themselves. The simple fact that they do not have enough food for the workers shows me that the Pachamama community is not ready for me. I left after 4 days and proofed by this action that I truly care. And you proof that you truly care by not going to this place. But if you go, you would need to change the place in a radical way by provoking and speaking out loud. Like a warrior. It is so clear.
