Meditation techniques; languagesThe meditation practiced at the centre is Vipassana Meditation or Mindfulness Meditation based on Sattipatthana Sutta and the Mahasi Sayadaw method. Meditators meditate from 4.00h a.m. until 9.00h p.m. Sitting and walking meditation are alternated. The rest of the time will be filled with an attentive and slow performance of daily routines such as getting up, washing, getting dressed, eating, taking a shower and so on. It is very important to create a continuous and uninterrupted attentiveness at all times and during every possible activity.
The instructions, interviews, and Dhamma talks of Sayadaw U Indaka are translated into English. When Ven. Virañani is present, she can provide instruction in English, and also understands French. When Ariya Baumann is at the centre, she gives talks in English and can also offer one-on-one instructions in Swiss German, German, and French.
