THE 3 VIPASSANA SCHEDULES

Are You a Silent Saddhu?

    Silent Saddhus are willing and able to practice for the entirety of the course. They will maintain noble silence, whilst adhering to all the course rules with the clear intention of receiving the maximum benefit from this sacred spiritual journey. 

Are You a Spiritual Hustler? 

    Spiritual Hustlers have a desire to engage fully in this meditation practice. They are focused on optimising performance to achieve spiritual transformation and liberation. The Hustler, however, has worldly responsibilities to attend to, requiring 1-3 hours of work/day. 

Are You a Workplace Warrior?

    The Workplace Warrior is committed to learning and practicing meditation but cannot get away from full time work, parenting, or other real world responsibilities. The warrior will continue to work a full day whilst meditating in the mornings and evenings.
    [PLEASE NOTE]: If you are on the Spiritual Hustler or Workplace Warrior schedule, your "Additional Rules," as described above, is modified to allow for limited computer and internet use, verbal & written communication, writing, as well as outside of program activities. However, it is our strong suggestion to minimize these areas as much as possible. How far you deviate from these rules & guidelines will have a direct effect on the depth of your meditation practice.
