1- Love what you’re doing, be obsessed
Well knowing that you’ll do your job in average about 8h per day. It makes sense to consider doing something you truly like!

What is Vipassana?
If you ask Google you will end up with a definition looking like: Vipassanā or vipaśyanā, is prajñā “insight into the true nature of reality”, defined as dukkha “suffering, unsatisfactoriness”, anatta “non-self”, and anicca “impermanence”, the three marks of existence in the Theravada tradition, and as śūnyatā “emptiness” and Buddha-nature in the Mahayana traditions.
For the ones who will feel confused by this, Vipassana is a meditation tecnics. Historically the one teached by Buddha. Currently the biggest organization, or one of the most known at least, teaching it is called http://dhamma.org they organize 10 day-silent retreat worldwide.
How did my Vipassana retreat look like

06:30 = Rice Offering to the monks
07:00 = Breakfast
08:00 = Vipassana meditation
10:30 = Rice offering to monks
11:00 = Lunch
13:00 = Vipassana meditation
16:00 = Cleaning of the area
17:00 = Relax, tea break
18:00 = Chanting and meditation
20:00 = Vipassana on our own
22:00 = Sleep
My personal feedback
It was definitely a great experience. I recommend anyone who has the chance of taking a few days off to try any retreat. Newbies and experienced meditators are welcome in those centers.
It’s good to get people to help you better understand the principles behind the meditation. Some may feel the time passing too slow. Personally, I really enjoyed taking time outside our daily routine. No email, no what’s app, no stimulus …
