Vipassana meditation on the natural way

Are you stressed and not feeling well? Do you feel unhappy? Are you stuck in life? Do you struggle with anger, anxiety or low self-esteem? Do you want to discover new perspectives on issues in your life? Do you want to feel more peace? As a Buddhist life coach I learn you the vipassana meditation on a natural way which you can integrate in your daily life.

Before I worked 12 years at a hospital in Thailand, I was an entrepreneur. My life was hard and I was more than 2 years very ill. I followed many vipassana meditation retreats and practiced the Buddhist lifestyle. In 2007 I moved to Belgium and became meditation teacher and Buddhist life coach. 

One of the biggest problems people have with meditation is the assumption that it requires emptying your mind entirely. It’s not about clearing your mind. It’s about focusing on one thing long enough. When the mind wanders, the meditation isn’t a failure. Our brain is like a wayward puppy, out of control. Catching it and putting it back to the object of focus is the meditation. Meditation is possible at any time, like when you are eating or walking. Do you want to become good in meditation? The key for this is practice.  

The key for a happy and healthy life

I don’t know anyone who wouldn’t like more peace, focus and clarity in their life. All this is possible through meditation. Did you know that even a big company like Google has mediation rooms and courses? Meditation is where we let mindfulness meet our life on a daily basis. Then we are aware in our lives and out of this, we begin to see more clearly. So we can live a meaningful life. A meaningful life is one of generosity, kindness, patience, effort, concentration and wisdom which we receive by meditation. 

People obtain short happiness by material things. They believe that materialism can give an answer on everything. By gathering more and more, people try to surround themselves with more security and safety. But they are not aware of the fact that they create more fear and insecurity in this way. They don’t see that the more they acquire, the greater the charge will be. Life becomes hard and lonely. The distrust becomes greater. They are afraid of themselves, of the other and of each other. Life is more than money and power. Balance is the key for a happy and healthy life. To create balance, we need discipline and we have to remember the truth of life which is love. Each of us is born out of love. We still have to learn how to love ourselves. We have to put ourselves on the first place. We need to develop the understanding of the word “balance”. Not too much and not too little.  

Vipassana, which means to see the things as they really are, is one of the most ancient techniques of meditation. Vipassana means insight. In contrast to the very precise and structured way to practice vipassana, as in some monasteries is performed, I offer you a way to discover vipassana on a natural way. It’s possible to reach the same state without living as an ascetic or hermit. But it remains a difficult process. Commitment and dedication are needed.
