42 things I learned meditating and serving at Vipassana ten-day course

How Vipassana can radically improve your life and work

A few days ago, I finished the Vipassana meditation retreat, where I was volunteering, as well as meditating. Here I explain how’s serving at Vipassana 10-day course, and how the experience was for me.

The last few days have been of integration, an essential part of the experience itself, stopping to do things, avoiding others, postponing others, changing many others and starting new ones. In this post, I detail the 42 “extra prizes” that I took from this 10-day retreat meditating and serving.

It’s about what you learn by meditating and serving at Vipassana, that you can integrate into your lifestyle and work…

Teachings and lessons that I have checked out for myself

  1. Breathing is the ultimate tool to be present.

What have I told myself that has transformed something in me

  1. Learn to see what it is, it is, in reality, there is nothing more, nothing less, it’s just “there”, it just “is.”

Eureka, discoveries and actions to carry out

  1. I have seen it. I have found “that” in me: it is called self-discipline, unstoppable attitude and effort.

What you learn Serving at Vipassana, meditating and volunteering is just an excuse

As you can see, the correct mentality and attitude mean that from a period of withdrawal and isolation you can obtain as much progress personally and professionally as you would get in a year studying or working. This is what you learn by meditating and Serving at Vipassana, as you can learn at home or travelling, it is the will to open and let out and enter what matters.
