Mini Anapana Meditation

What is Mini Anapana Meditation?

The first three and a half days of a 10 day residential Vipassana course are spent practicing Anapana meditation, which is the observation of one’s breath.

Mini Anapana Meditation is a short introduction to this technique and is presented using recorded instructions given by Mr. S. N. Goenka.

The first Mini Anapana Meditation held in Japan was presented as a trial in 2016. Participants joined with diverse interests but many had limited time available to attend a full ten day Vipassana residential course while others wished to prepare for a course. Attendees shared a common interest to further their understanding of meditation through an opportunity to practice.

The program for Mini Anapana Meditation in 2017 is as follows.
