Federal State: Иркутская область
Description:

Центр випассаны Dhammapadipa открыт в деревне Большие Коты на берегу Байкала. Мы принимаем учеников летом, когда можно медитировать, не отвлекаясь на холод.

Метод медитации - Сатипаттхана Випассана, медитация прозрения, базирующаяся на четырех основах осознанности:

осознанность тела
осознанность ощущений
осознанность ума
осознанность объектов ума

Медитация состоит из одинаковых промежутков ходьбы и сидения с осознаванием и умственной фиксацией внешних и внутренних явлений. В методе уделяется особое внимание равитию концентрации от момента к моменту в паре с осознанностью. Ежедневно медитатор получает новые инструкции от учителя. Предполагается, что медитатор серьезно практикует и четко следует инструкциям учителя, не смешивая випассану с другими техниками. Это довольно интенсивная и сложная практика.

Description:

Once a year Steve and Rosemary Weismann visit Europe to teach two retreats - one in Germany and one in Switzerland. 

Rosemary Weissman (b. 1952) and Steve Weissman (b. 1949) have been practicing meditation since 1972, and have received instruction from many of the leading Buddhist meditation teachers of Thailand, Burma, Sri Lanka, India, Australia, England and the United States.

They traveled to Thailand in 1979 and had the good fortune of being able to visit and practice with many famous Thai meditation teachers. It was during this trip that they were greatly influenced by one teacher who stressed the importance of having compassion, not only for others but also to have compassion for themselves.

In 1987, they were requested to teach at Wat Kow Tahm in Southern Thailand, and founded the International Meditation Retreat program in 1988. Since then, over 8,000 people from over 85 countries have participated in their retreats.

After 25 years in Thailand, they returned to Australia to live. Periodically, they teach in Australia and also travel to Europe & Singapore to teach retreats and/or workshops. They are authors of “…with Compassionate Understanding”, “Meditation, Compassion and Lovingkindness” and “Wise Reflection”, available worldwide.

Stressed highly among Steve and Rosemary’s teaching is the development of compassionate understanding.
