Vipassana meditation is a common practise to develop mindfulness, insight and compassion toward one-self and others.
Durga being the name of a Goddess of the Asiatic regions who is characterised by the qualities of motherhood, protection and strength.
Vipassana Durga as the practise I shall be facilitating, is a dynamic guided meditation that requires such qualities, so as to be safely held in a supported group environment where you may access your inner strength to free yourself of disturbing psychological, emotional, unconsious and sunbconscious influences.
That may sound like a lot, because it is. the outcomes experienced through this practice are very often life changing in the most extraordinarily positive ways. I say that with conviction as one who first experienced this practice almost forty years ago and who has been facilitating one-on-one sessions and groups, pretty-well ever since.
Related methods have been utilised by indigenous cultures for thousands of years, often referred to as Trance Therapy, Re-Birthing, Holotropic Breathing, and more recently simply as Breath-Work.
This event has been timed to coincide with the energy of the Dark Moon moving into the New Moon.
With an acute appreciation for the benefits of 'looking after one-self',
(having nearly run myself literally out of action about twenty years ago)
these sessions are aimed at you for your sake and the sake of All,
in the context of our collective well
being, happiness and longevity.

I have been working in the area of wholistic medicine since the 80's, running retreats, workshops, healing centres, meditation centres and martial art schools in Australia, Ireland, England and Indonesia throughout those years. For almost twenty of those years I was engaged with a Vajrayana Buddhist Sangha, consecrated in that context as a Lama and regularly visited Indonesia where many of my Guides, Teachers and Spiritual Friends reside.
These days I am based on the Mornington Peninsula, Australia,
focusing my energies toward weekly Qishengong sessions,
meditation, and related community engagements.
