In today's climate of spiritual trends, meditation has become one of the hottest. And of course, right? I mean, after all, one of the most axiomatic principles ever uttered by a human is ‘know thyself,' right? And what better way to get to know yourself, but to spend some time alone in silence. 

But how long would it take to benefit from the practice of quiet introspection? How long could you be silent? How many hours per day could you enjoy (or tolerate) a sitting meditation? How about ten or twenty days without talking to a single soul, spending hour after hour just sitting there doing NOTHING. To some, this prospect sounds like heaven and of course, to others who are less acquainted with their inner selves, this idea might seem utterly terrifying. 

Our guest Diego Perez (AKA Yung Pueblo) is a veteran of many an inner journey and provides us with a fascinating play by play report on precisely what happens on a Vipassana silent meditation retreat. 

From this episode, you'll gain a deep understanding of not only the specific protocol of the various meditation retreats but also of the fundamentals of Buddhism, and how to apply the simple yet profoundly powerful principles of the lineage to your everyday life. After all, it's not only what happens on your meditation cushion that matters, but more so how you're able to integrate this ancient wisdom and cause ripples of positive energy to wash over your every moment and to everyone you might encounter on your earthbound journey. 

Listen, as Yung Pueblo drops knowledge bombs of immense power onto your consciousness, then take a moment to transmit that peace to someone you love by sharing this extraordinary episode with them. 

Here's to your practice,

”Even if you’re the hottest of the hot messes, you can totally heal yourself”
