If you have ever heard of or been intrigued about the idea of a silent meditation retreat then it might be time for you to register for a Vipassana course!
It was something I always wanted to do but then fell pregnant and had a baby to nurse. 6 years later I felt that opportunity had appeared. Not only did I feel my kids were old enough to happily spend 10 days without any contact with me, but a course was scheduled to start on the school holidays. Their father had reappeared in their lives and wanted to spend time with them, so it was really a win-win.
I have to admit I was extremely nervous and was tossing around ideas that I could fly over to LA or Thailand and spend 10 days kid free doing whatever the hec I wanted! 6 years of raising kids alone will do that to you! I would think, 10 days freedom….and I want to spend it in a concentration camp? What the hec?
Since I felt all clogged up with pain from past relationship pains, betrayals from friends in business (p.s. you should never mix friends and business), business failures and simply a lack of clarity in life, I thought it was the best investment of my time to commit to 10 days, follow the technique and see what happens.
Welcome! I decided freedom and flexibily were my top values and set out to create that life…
