jonathan preboyanna scharfenberg 2020Vipassana (Insight) meditation is based on mindfulness, which is always available, everywhere, without limit or cost. The challenge is how to realise it. The answer was provided by the Buddha. He taught ways to cultivate mindfulness that lead to insight and awakening.

Experienced students of Vipassana can contact us for meditation support (Whats App 00420722008067). We will offer Zoom talks on daily practice later.
