My gratitude to my Yoga Teacher, Mr. Gan Kian Ong for introducing me to this Meditation.
The Vipassana Meditation is a 10-day course for new students. You live the 10 days’ life of a recluse and practice meditation for about 9 hours a day. For beginners like me the first few days are very daunting and frustrating. You are taught the technique of this meditation and only on my 4th day that I am able to calm my mind and practice stillness albeit with some discomfort. On my 6th day that I am able to sit still for a solid hour with calmness. Back home I continue to deligently practise meditation for 2 hours a day. It is a rewarding experience.
