Introduction to Vipassana Meditation

Vipassana meditation is a form of insight meditation that was taught by Gautama Buddha. It focuses on observing the sensations, feelings and state of mind as an object without reacting to them. The goal is to develop self-awareness by cultivating mindfulness and introspection.

Vipassana meditation has been practiced for over 2,500 years with millions of people worldwide practicing it today. It’s also known as “insight” or “mindfulness” meditation because it helps you become more aware of what’s happening in your mind and body at any given moment so that you can make better decisions about how to live your life based on this awareness rather than acting on impulse or habit alone (which may not always be good for us).

There are many benefits associated with Vipassana Meditation including: improved focus; reduced stress levels; increased happiness/joyfulness; reduced anxiety/depression symptoms
