My Vipassana retreat, with the Goenka method in Yangoon, Myanmar

November 27, 2017

I might have written this article (in my head) at least 100 times during the 10-day Vipassana retreat I did in September in Yangoon, Burma.

Healing with mudras

August 7, 2017

Mudras are hand gestures that were used in meditation and that are now used in the yoga practice: yoga asanas, meditation, ceremonies, dance etc. It is considered that each finger of the hand corresponds to an element, the same way Ayurveda considers that each cell of our body is composed of the 5 elements: Fire, Water, Air, Earth, Ether. The thumb corresponds to the fire element, the index to the air element, the middle finger is the ether element, ring finger is…
