Therapy Toronto Psychotherapy Definitions
- Vipassana in Hindu tradition means to see things as they are, to see things in their true perspective, in their true nature. It is,in essence, a technique of self-observation and self-exploration.
It is one of India's most ancient techniques of meditation and was taught in India more than 2500 years ago as a remedy for universal ills. It is a valuable technique of reducing tension, broadening awareness and making life more meaningful and pleasurable, as a result it can be a very supportive adjunct to psychotherapy. (GM)
