This tour will give you an introduction of what Anapana Meditation is and will have a taste of this meditation for about 15 minutes. Both the introduction and instruction will be played from a recording of my meditation teacher Mr. S.N. Goenkaji who has passed away in 2013. This tour is not intended to make any money, but purely to share with you an ancient meditation technique that benefits me so much. In this tradition of meditation, the course is always free as it is so invaluable that no price tag can be put on it. Therefore, all the tipping from this tour, exclude those part of the Heygo.com, will be donated to the Hong Kong Vipassana Meditation Centre Limited. Anapana is the first step in the practice of Vipassana meditation. Anapana means observation of natural, normal respiration, as it comes in and as it goes out. It is an easy to learn, objective and scientific technique that helps develop concentration of the mind. Observation of the breath is the ideal object for meditation because it is always available and it is completely non-sectarian. Anapana is very different from techniques that are based on the artificial regulation of breath. There are no rites or rituals involved in the practice or presentation of Anapana. Anapana provides a tool to deal with the fears, anxieties and pressures across all age groups. Besides helping to calm and concentrate the mind, Anapana help people to understand themselves better and gives them an insight into the workings of their own minds. Because of its simplicity, the technique is easy to understand and practice. Guidelines 1) A Mini Anapana session should be conducted in a quiet hall or room suitable for meditation 2) Participants must listen and practice carefully, sitting with their backs straight while maintaining complete silence through out the entire session 3) Neither the person hosting the session nor anyone else should give any other instructions, live or recorded; the only instructions given should be that of Mr. Goenka's Mini Anapana recording 4) There should be no charge whatsoever for attending a Mini Anapana session

Katie mentioned that this meditation tour wouldn't be repeated. It was a wonderful experience. Even though there is no tipping for this session, I tip for other tours that I have taken. And I will tip her well on the next tour that I take with her. I would love to participate in more sessions like this one. Also, I would be open to experiencing other spiritual sessions...
