Nature Meditation at Ahaspokuna

“Elevate your mind and find your soul”
Have you ever wondered why meditation retreats and monasteries are located in mountains or deep in forests? Nature meditations allow us to become more receptive to our natural environment. We stop viewing nature as inert and start viewing it as alive and breathing, filled with mystery and wonderment. Nature comes delightfully alive, rekindling our exuberance and improving our state of mind. When in nature, we can learn tremendously – nature is a place where wisdom and perception come alive. Meditating outdoors also activates our entire senses and elevates mindfulness allowing us to be more alert and wakeful.
Ahaspokuna, with its calm beautiful surroundings, is a sanctuary for you to practice Nature Meditation.

As with yoga lessons, we are happy to arrange an experienced instructor for you to learn meditation at Ahaspokuna during your stay. These sessions will be followed by discussions with your instructor about mindfulness and the Buddhist way of life. Let us know if you’d like to partake in a few yoga sessions as well.

Mr. Vipula Wanigasekara

Nature Meditation Teacher

Vipula, author and Nature Meditation Teacher, will share a one-on-one discussion with you on happiness, mindfulness, and Buddhism, before he introduces you to meditation.

After having gone through many teachings and practiced meditation for a long time, he decided to write the book ‘Pointers to Enlightenment’ with the realisation that the seeker is illusory, while most humans are caught up in a mind-driven life. As of now, he is a Senior Lecturer at the National School of Business Management Sri Lanka. He has previously worked as a Marketing Professional, Diplomat and Senior Government Official.

In the Sinhalese language (spoken in Sri Lanka), “Ahas” means “Sky” and “Pokuna” means “Pond” or “Pool”. Ahaspokuna is so named in reference to the lake here, high up in the hills, that is only fed by rainwater. A former settlement that sprung up on its shores was subsequently also named “Ahaspokuna”. Today, the jungle tide has washed over where people once lived and the camp provides a wilderness retreat for those in search of something different. Ahaspokuna by Eco Team
