Dr. Velez's husband, Damien, comes on to share his experience on a 10-day silent meditation retreat. Vipassana, which means to see things as they really are, is one of India's most ancient techniques of meditation. He shares the depths of the lessons he uncovered, how challenging it was to quiet the mind, what he was forced to face, and how he's been able to apply these lessons to his daily life.
"Even the most challenging of moments, pass."
"Vipassana is a way of self-transformation through self-observation. It focuses on the deep interconnection between mind and body, which can be experienced directly by disciplined attention to the physical sensations that form the life of the body, and that continuously interconnect and condition the life of the mind. It is this observation-based, self-exploratory journey to the common root of mind and body that dissolves mental impurity, resulting in a balanced mind full of love and compassion." - https://www.dhamma.org/en-US/index
