To all our dhamma friends

Welcome at the Dutch foundation for Insight Meditation (SIM). The SIM promotes Vipassana meditation and Theravada Buddhism in the Netherlands.
This part of the SIM site mainly focusses on international retreats with teachers from East and West. For all other activities and local meditation centres across the Netherlands, we refer to the Dutch section.

Bringing mindfulness to how it feels
During this retreat we would like to explore mindfulness of the feeling tones, which is the second foundation of the practice of mindfulness. We will try to present the different aspects of mindfulness. We will define feeling tones and how to be mindful of them. The Pali term vedana refers to the affective tone of experience. When we come into contact through one of our six senses with the environment, we experience a pleasant, unpleasant or neither pleasant nor unpleasant feeling tone.***

An open minded approach to meditation
During the retreat, Venerable Kumara, a monk from Malaysia, offers a method by which you can convert meditating sitting in silence into an commonplace activity: in every moment and with a relaxed mind.
