Vipassana meditation is my newest practice. Here is more about Vipassana, and the eternal truths it deals with -
"It is a process of self-purification by self-observation. One begins by observing the natural breath to concentrate the mind. With a sharpened awareness one proceeds to observe the changing nature of body and mind, and experiences the universal truths of impermanence, suffering, & egolessness. This truth-realization by direct-experience is the process of purification. The entire path (Dhamma) is a universal remedy for universal problems, and has nothing to do with any organized religion or sectarianism. For this reason, it can be practiced freely by everyone, at any time, in any place, without conflict due to race, community, or religion, and it will prove equally beneficial to one and all." from the tract "Vipassana Meditation" as taught by S.N. Goenka
Thanks for asking, there is more on the Vipassana "discussion" on the Meditation group.
I was not in Tampa, but there was a colleague at the Vipassana Retreat from Tampa. Nice guy whose family owns a tugboat company on the Great Lakes.
The greatest thing a human soul ever does in this world is to see something, and tell what it saw in a plain way.
Hundreds of people can talk for one who can think, but thousands can think for one who can see.
To see clearly is poetry, prophecy, and religion - all in one.
