Back in May, I wrote a post about Vipassana Meditation. Well, tomorrow, I will be experiencing the same thing that the prisoners in that documentary experienced. I have to admit, a lot of people will consider this pretty “New Age-y” and I won’t deny that, but I’m also completely fine with it.
I’m looking at this first and foremost as an interesting vacation. Most people go on vacation and they come back feeling more tired, and none the better. Even though this is less than two hours away, I might as well be going to some remote island somewhere, because what I’ll experience in these 10 days is nothing that I will ever experience. So at the very least, it will be challenging and possibly eye-opening.
