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.
