Vipassana Workshop Retreat in the Desert

Join a spiritual retreat in the heart
of the Arava at Kibbutz Lotan. The workshop will be led by Dina Kushnir
who has been studying and practicing insight meditation (Vipassana)
for over 17 years.

What is Insight Meditation? Insight
meditation or Vipassana is a simple method which examines mind and body processes
within a framework of a relaxed yet focused self-awareness. Vipassana teaches
you how to:

  • Gain insight
    into your inner self
  • Accept pleasure and
    pain, fear and joy, in a more balanced and peaceful manner
  • Experience the present:
    how to train your consciousness to fully focus and pay attention to that
    which is happening within you
  • Integrate the mundane
    with the spiritual, maintain mental balance and harmony, and gain insight
    into life itself.

    Note: The workshop
    runs most of the time in total silence and involves meditating while sitting,
    eating, and moving about. It also includes personal and group interviews,
    evening lectures, and a combination of spiritual work with an ecological
    project within the community to enhance one’s awareness.
