We invite you to a 3-hour course of Vipassana (insight) meditation 

  • Vipassana uses mindfulness to rewire the brain;
  • This meditation develops the ability to release self-created stress
  • Stop following negative thoughts and believing them (self-criticism, comparing, "something is not right" thoughts), deal with difficult feelings.

Vipassana is a simple meditation technique with big benefits and this course is an opportunity to learn and practice it together, with enough space for discussion. An important point will be how to get the benefits of meditation in daily life.

The course is suitable for both beginners and those who already have some experience with Vipassana. The course will be in English with translation into Czech.
