About Silent Insight Awareness Meditation – Naturally and Simply Observe
Silent Insight Awareness Meditation is a simple, practical and profound practice that encourages us to become the impartial observer of one’s self. This means not trying to stop thoughts and sensations but, rather observe these thoughts and sensations without interpretations – in other words, without judgements.
We learn to simply to observe what is happening whether it is good or bad, comfortable or uncomfortable, without putting a meaning on it, without imposing a goal or outcome on it. These retreats are an opportunity wherein the meditator has space and freedom to allow all his or her feelings and patterns and thoughts to arise and be as they are. This is what it means to harmonise the physical, emotional, mental in and with the spiritual. Nothing is left out.
“If a person wishes to understand spiritual practice, Silent Insight Awareness Meditation is an excellent prerequisite to understand and relax the body and the mind so that Spiritual Practice can commence.” - Master Yanchiji
Awaken the Teacher “inside”
Meditators will be reminded of this important aspect throughout the retreat. The retreat is to awaken the teacher “inside”. It is to awaken one’s unconditioned intelligence. It is to awaken and feel one’s total humanity. Total humanity meaning one’s warts and all, and to be in peace with every aspect of Self.
