A young woman’s yearning for inner peace is about to be realized—at a trip to the woods where she unlocks the secrets of the ever-thinking mind. Hosted by spiritual master S. N. Goenka, a ten-day silent retreat she attends irrevocably alters her perspective…and her future.
"Inner Pilgrimage: Ten Days to a Mindful Me" is a comprehensive, moment-by-moment description of the author’s ten-day vipassana meditation retreat. The story unfolds with her arrival at the retreat as an ordinary being seeking a calmer, more centered existence. Sacrificing every luxury and self-indulgence, and following a rigid daily routine that excludes reading, writing, praying, listening to music, watching television, and talking, the author spends ten hours everyday, meditating. She focuses on her breath and observes her bodily sensations, often without moving for hours at a time.
