Thursday morning, I will be leaving to a 10 Day Vipassana Meditation Retreat from May 19th to May 30th, 2010.. To be honest, I’ve been thinking all week about writing some profound post about how amazing and life changing meditation is for all people. Sometimes during my meditations, passages from the Bible, Dao De Jing, and Buddhist Sutras spontaneously came to mind, and I realized their truth on a visceral level beyond (or is beneath?) the intellect.
Surrounded by 72 acres of beautiful meditation gardens and wild forest in Northern California, the Ananda Meditation Retreat is an ideal setting for a rejuvenating, inner experience.
Our Meditation Retreat has been a place of deep meditation and sincere devotion for nearly fifty years.

Awareness Adventures Spiritual Retreats are a life changing opportunity for those intent on personal transformation.
At inspiring locations around the globe you’ll visit sacred sites, experience locations of great healing power and participate in ancient rituals. When you are able to disconnect from the outside world and delve into your deepest inside, a new window can open into a more spiritual universe that often helps resolving emotional and personal conflicts. Nowadays, you feel very often inside a rhythm of life that does not allow you to stop and take a moment to dedicate to interior reflection. If you do not dedicate any time to tranquility and inner peace, it can happen that you forget the reality of the present moment. Meditation cannot only be done for spiritual purposes, but also to help maintaining physical and mental health. Essential Retreat Organizer proposes you programs where this meditation and spiritual deepening is done by professionals who will guide you according to your knowledge and goals. Now is the time for you to renew your dedication to life as a spiritual person expressing the manifestation of your inner light!
I will be free from all the everyday distractions such as work, television, people, and extraneous thoughts leaving me to just face my self, whatever that is.
Meditation gardens and wild forest provide the perfect backdrop for you to go deep into Silence and re-enter your true reality… the Soul’s ever existing Calmness. We are the first home of Ananda, an intentional spiritual community established for the purposes of living life based on Yogananda’s teachings that embrace the truths that underlie all the great religions.

But I realized that those questions did not matter as much as I originally thought they were.
