At the ten day residential meditation courses run by the Japan Vipassana Association, the first three and a half days are spent observing the breath. This is called Anapana meditation.
A Mini Anapana session is an even shorter summary of this technique which is presented using meditation instructions recorded by Mr. S. N. Goenka for the purpose of these sessions.
At the Mini Anapana sessions held several times a year, participants who attended for a variety of reasons—from not having the time to attend a ten day residential course to wanting to prepare for taking part in such a course—furthered their understanding of meditation through the opportunity to try it out in actual practice.
A Mini Anapana session will be held in July 2019 as detailed below.
