#37 - My 10-day Vipassana silent retreat - Alex Lamber

Meditation is an important foundation of my growth and I wanted to explore more techniques.

Vipassana is the technique that was taught by the Buddha 2,500 years ago. It is quite an intense technique and requires a 10-day silent retreat to learn it, where you meditate about 10 hours a day.

Vipassana has been celebrated by some of the brightest people like Sam Harris or Yuval Noah Harari.

As I'm just back from the retreat and many people asked for my feedback, I wanted to do a podcast about it. Spoiler alert: It was amazing!

I discussed:
1. What motivated me to do it?
2. What it is and how it felt during the retreat
3. What I've leaned
4. How do I apply the learning as I got back
5. Vipassana vs Transcendental meditation
6. Q&A
