The Journey Begins

I took my first Goenka Vipassana course in March 2010 and I completed 7 months of long term service at Dhamma Patapa in Jesup, GA in July 2012. I participated in long term service to gain a deeper understanding of this powerful and difficult practice. Now I’m presented with the great challenge of integrating this practice into my daily life. I’ve decided to write a blog about this daily struggle because reading my experience may help support and motivate other meditators in this tradition to work through similar barriers in their practices.


About Ryan Shelton

In March of 2010 I discovered a path to peace and happiness through a 10-day Vipassana meditation course in the tradition of S.N. Goenka. After establishing my personal practice, and witnessing how it changed my way of life, I'm now curious to explore how the growing community of meditators can help to support each other and make the world a better place.
