Zero Mind Meditation
7 Days process
Just go inwards and it is not thousands of miles away. It is only thousands of thoughts away.
It’s divided into three parts:
Stage One: Dance – 30 Minutes
Stage Two: Gibberish – One hour
Stage Three: Silence (Vipassana) – One hour
• Time Table:
13:30 to 16:00 Zero Mind Meditation Process
16:15 to 17:15 Kundlini Meditation
19:30 to 21:00 Evening Celebration
• Stage One: Dance – 30 Minutes:
Start with 30 Minute journey of meditation through primal dance. This unique experience allows your body to dissolve completely, releasing toxins and bringing deep relaxation to your mind and body.
• Stage Two: Gibberish – One hour:
In the whimsical world of Gibberish, a participant engages in a linguistic dance with a language they have no knowledge of. Uttering nonsensical phrases and words, they create a symphony of meaninglessness. As this delightful charade continues for an entire hour, a profound silence descends upon the surroundings, leaving everyone in awe of the power of gibberish.
• Stage Three: Silence (Vipassana) – One hour
In silence you freeze your body and watch whatever is happening. Here the practitioner does not use any specific object of meditation; rather, practitioners remain as much as possible in the present moment, aware of and observing what passes through their minds and around them.
• It has been observed that the silence which you will experience here after Gibberish will be a lot deeper than what you experience generally in your silent sitting meditation or in Vipassana.
• Facilitated by: Swami Advaitananda Giri and Team
According to the tradition of meditation, there are no fees or charges for attending the courses, not even for accommodation and food & beverages. All expenses of the course & of running the center are met by the voluntary donations from those who have completed at least one week course with us, experienced the benefits of Meditation, and wish to share with others the same opportunity. One can choose to donate according to his free will. We never ask for it. The donations are accepted only after completing the course. It is like one person has donated for your course and after completing your course, you donate for the next person as you feel appropriate, the next person attends the course and he donates for the next person, this way the cycle goes on. Some participant donates, some are not in the capacity to donate, some wants to skip it, somehow it works very well. The donations are recommended, not compulsory. The entire team works as volunteers of Karma Yoga. The team includes teachers, servers, and trustees. None of the team members receives any remuneration for their service.
