Vipassana Meditation

See things as they really are

Vipassana means “Insight,” a clear awareness of exactly what is happening as it happens. Vipassana meditation is the practice of observing the subtle sensations throughout the body without reacting to them. The meditator scans the body with their attention, noticing the sensations that arise and just watching them. If a sensation is pleasurable or uncomfortable, the meditator simply observes them and lets them pass.

In Vipassana meditation, the meditator uses concentration to increase awareness, which can bring Liberation. Liberation is the goal of all Buddhist systems of practice.

In Samma Karuna we offer a daily free Vipassana meditation practice at 7:15 am at our branch in Koh Phangan (available Monday to Saturday).  Samma Karuna Vipassana meditation practice is suitable both for experienced as well as new meditators. Short guidance will be given at the beginning of every practice.
