10 days of meditation

This month my girlfriend and I did a meditation course called Vipassana. In total silence we were only concentrated on ourselfs, 10 days, 10 hours a day. No phone or other distraction, men and women separated.

I hear you thinking: What is your motivation and goal of the meditation?
Well, the way I would explain it is that with Vipassana meditation you get rid of unconscious stored negative emotions. During the meditation you can feel that you get rid of them.
Another reason is that you expand your consciousness, not only during the meditation but also during everyday life. You become more aware of your social and anti-social behavior, you lose stress and anger which eventually leads to more happiness. These are for me some of the reasons why this meditation course is so enriching.

For some people it sounds extreme but I think there is nothing extreme about it. Of course it is a bit strange not to talk and sit the whole day. You need some perseverance; 130 persons out of 140 finished the 10 day course, with a big smile and a great experience for their life.

After my return I got rewarded with lots of deep powder.
