Vipassana Leiden organizes a meditation weekend about Mindfulness of the Body, by Sayalay Chandhadika and are happy to welcome you on November 25th & 26th.

Sayalay is a Buddhist non, originally from Myanmar, who thoroughly studied and meditated amongst others with Sayadaw Pa Auk.

Meditation on the first foundation of mindfulness: The body. You can experience the body always in the present moment and the body is a strong base for mindfulness. It’s coming home when we observe the body. Sayalay Chandhadika will guide us this weekend in the different categories of the body: – the postures, the breath, the characteristics of the four elements: hardness, softness, heaviness, lightness, smoothness, roughness, hot and cold, fluidity and cohesion and movement. Together with this practice, we will explore to understand Buddhist concepts of Emptiness (Suññata) and Non-self (Anatta).
