My first experience of Vipassana was the Goenka method, 10 days of Silence, with hours of sitting in Bangalore India. My experience was not one of awakening but one of PAIN, so much pain that I couldn’t even hear what the teachers were teaching. My parting feeling was that of amazement and achievement for actually being able to do it, that was it. So when I decided to venture into Vipassana again I knew it wasn’t going to be the Goenka Method.
My delightful path of teachers led me to Burgs. Attending his 7 day silent retreat then his year online course I applied for his Vipassana retreat. Fully trusting that my experience would be what is was meant to be.
