Weekend meditation with Adi Ichsan: 14-15-16 October 2016 this year coming to Curacao for a weekend meditation course Achariya Dhammuttamo (Drs. Adi Ichsan), Vipassana meditation teacher at Stichting Dhammadipa. The course will start on Friday afternoon. What do we mean by meditate? It is something physical or is something mental? The lotus position or the half lotus posture and there affect? What happens while meditating? These questions can best be answered by the stating that under meditate means carefully dwell on a subject, without contemplation absentmindedness of spirit. While at contemplation means observing, reflecting and intuitively understand. There are two types of meditation models in the Buddhist tradition, one that leads to calmness and another that leads to wisdom. Calm meditation has as a means of developing a growing concentration while the wisdom meditation as a means of developing insights. Vipassana is typical of the wisdom model, in Buddhism it was believed that the Buddha attained his enlightenment because he applied the wisdom meditation on are advanced concentration meditation. Both models are subject to vigilant attentiveness. It is not that calm focused entirely on concentration and wisdom is based purely on attentiveness. The meditations will be practiced in the; Standing-; lie; walking postures.
