Vipassana Skype sessions of out-loud Mahasi style noting

Postby brandwach » Mon Feb 24, 2014 10:28 pm

Skype sessions of out-loud Mahasi style noting with others.
I do vipassana - Mahasi style noting. This is a meditation that can be done with others out loud. It is very effective.
I am looking for noting partners. This can be done on the phone if you are in the US, as I am. Or it can also be done on skype.
I am looking for others who would like to skype with me from time to time. Already do this practice with three others. It has been very fruitful.
This is common among the practical/pragmatic Dharma scene propagated by Kenneth Folk, and Daniel Ingram.
I am happy to teach you what I know about this technique. To be clear I am not putting myself out as "a teacher" by offering this intro to Mahasi style noting.
Please PM me and I"ll give you my email address, phone number and skype address.
Let me know.
Metta,

Hi i do Mahasi style - when you start you can say the words out loud - but after a short time you should move to say it in your head - i guess after a few days you should stop with saying it out loud - its only good at the very beginning - and even that is not a must and you can go straight to "saying it" silently - how can you be mindful of what is happening in public if you speak out loud - people would think your crazy

this dosnt mean what you did isnt useful - but no doubt you should move on now - the goal is to be mindful all day

Aflame with the fire of passion, the fire of aversion, the fire of delusion.
Aflame, with birth, aging & death, with sorrows, lamentations, pains, distresses, & despairs ......

Seeing thus, the disciple of the Noble One grows disenchanted. SN 35.28

Greetings,

It's probably time to close this topic now... if anyone wishes to contact brandwach with regards to the Skype offer, please do so via PM.

As noted above, this is more of a Kenneth Folk / Daniel Ingram technique than a Mahasi one, so if anyone wishes to discuss the proposed technique further, please do so in the Open Dhamma forum.
