Hi, I'm a new member here, I was hoping that I will learn a lot from this site that could help me to improved practicing my meditation. I'm just new in meditation, mostly self-practiced. And as a beginner, I'm just doing some research of proper posture and other basic methods to practice. That's why I decided to join in this kind of forum site to learned new things from you guys. Thank you so much for accepting me here. :)

Hi friends! I’m Travis. I won’t bore you all with details about me. So suffice it to say; I’ve got a moderate amount of experience in meditating and vipassana and I use the Mahasi Sayadaw technique of noting

Hi everyone,

My name is Finnur and I’m very happy to be on this forum.

After dabbling in meditation for several years I did a 10 day Goenka-Vipassana retreat last May and have been keeping up the two hours a day so far.

Looking forward to hearing of other people’s experiences.

Hello all. Myself Dhruv from India. I have completed 4 Vipassana courses - 3 ten-day and 1 Satippathana, as taught by SN Goenka, in the Sayagyi U Ba Khin tradition. I have also served in one 10-day course.

I try to maintain my daily practice. Most importantly I try to make sure that I apply Dhamma in real life.

I look forward to interacting with all you fellow meditators.

Metta to all!

Hey.

I've been meditating regularly since December 2017 at 15 years old (though I've meditated as early as childhood, just not regularly). I meditate a few times a week and am slowly making my sessions longer at the moment.

I'm also curious about your experiences with meditation

My name is Aayush and I attended SN Goenka's 10 day vipassana course...I mostly rely on the dhamma.org app...

Thank you Aayush. I had never heard of the dhamma.org app.
