22 Days, 21 Nights Pre-Vipassana Course in Thailand

From: USD$1,207.00

Start a deep journey into yourself whilst you experience an authentic and fun spiritual community where you can be yourself, relax and prepare for your Vipassana Mediation retreat.

At Samma Karuna we love Vipassana and we embrace it as an authentic path for happiness & inner-peace. It is out of many frustrating and difficult retreats that we have created this course, part of our Awakening & Healing program®.

Running throughout the year, our Pre-Vipassana course uses active, dynamic and still meditations along with Yoga and Qi-Gong to leave your body and mind ready to take the best benefits of a Vipassana retreat.

We understand that it is important to work on “the big stones” before deepening on the subtle world of Vipassana.

This course is suitable from completely beginners to very experienced Vipassana meditators. A senior teacher will meet up with you and tailor the course to your particular needs.

Activities description

Yoga practice
Samma Karuna’s yoga is gentle, spiritual and therapeutic. Suitable both for beginners and experienced practitioners. A senior teacher may recommend you to take some asanas practice in order to help you develop the strength required to sit for long hours in meditation posture.

Qi Gong
Qi Gong is a practice of mastering Qi in the body (life force energy) through rhythmic breathing, slow and sometimes rapid movement, static poses which are held for a period of time, and deep focus. A senior teacher may recommend you take some classes in order to help you improve your awareness of the subtle sensations present throughout your body.

Samma Karuna AUM Meditation
Fifteen stages intense cathartic meditation inspired on Humaniversity AUM meditation and OSHO’s AUM Marathon. Three and a half hours journey of opening up to your emotions, reconnecting with your body and celebrating life. A senior teacher may recommend you take this experiential before your Vipassana retreat if your mind and current emotional state requires strong cathartic work.

Awakening Class
As a school of self-realization our main concern is to help our students finding an authentic and long-lasting happiness. As a non-dogmatic, non-religious school, our aim is to help you develop your own light and wisdom. Our Awakening lectures are designed to provide you with a deeper understanding on what is meditation, what is Vipassana and how it can help you to be happy.

Riberthing Breathwork
Rebirthing is a gentle yet powerful conscious breathing technique. It brings into awareness our unconsciously held beliefs, emotions and the relationships we have with our bodies and ourselves. By birthing with awareness we make possible to resolve, integrate and heal previously unresolved issues in our lives.

OSHO Dynamic & Osho Active meditations
Active meditation created by the spiritual master OSHO. Meditative processes that uses movement and expression to lead you to stillness and meditation. A senior teacher may recommend you to take some of this meditations as part of your Pre-Vipassana retreat if you have no previous experience in meditation.

Sudarshan Kriya / Samma Karuna Aurora SoHam
Breathing is the first act of life. Within the breath is the unexplored secret of life. Sudarshan Kriya is a powerful yet simple rhythmic breathing technique that incorporates specific natural rhythms of the breath, harmonizing the body, mind and emotions.This technique eliminates stress, fatigue and negative emotions such as anger, frustration and depression. Leaving the mind calm and focused, the body energized and completely relaxed.
