Vipassana, which means to see things as they really are, is one of India's most ancient techniques of meditation.
The technique of Vipassana Meditation is taught at ten-day residential courses during which participants learn the basics of the method, and practice sufficiently to experience its beneficial results. There are no charges for the courses - not even to cover the cost of food and accommodation.
Courses are given in numerous Meditation Centers and at non-center course locations at rented sites. Hawaii Vipassana is a group of people who offer meditation courses at a non-center site and old student group sits that are dedicated to the teaching of Vipassana meditation as taught by S.N.

The new Southern California Vipassana Center Dhamma Vaddhana, is one of over 120 international centers and numerous non-center sites where the technique of Vipassana meditation is taught and practiced. Vipassana, which means to see things as they really are, is one of India's most ancient techniques of meditation.
Please use the schedule page to register for a course, or contact the Center if you have any inquiries. The technique is taught at ten-day residential courses during which participants follow a prescribed Code of Discipline, learn the basics of the method, and practice sufficiently to experience its beneficial results. Because it has been found to be genuinely helpful, great emphasis is put on preserving the technique in its original, authentic form. There are no charges for the courses - not even to cover the cost of food and accommodation. Developers are trying to put the nation's largest garbage dump right next to Joshua Tree National Park.
The proposed Eagle Mountain landfill would cover 3,500 acres of federal land, bordered on three sides by Joshua Tree's unique beauty, and fragile ecosystem. The landfill would take in 20,000 tons of garbage per day, 16 hours a day, six days a week, for 117 years -- posing a profound threat to the desert ecosystem and imperiled species that the next-door National Park is designed to protect. The Department of the Interior has twice sided with the developers in favor of the landfill -- but so far hasn't taken a position on their appeal to the Supreme Court. The Department of the Interior has a deadline of February 25th to submit its position to the Court. George Van Tassel (creator of the Integratron), had a special fascination with airplanes, which led him to obtain his pilot's license while still a teenager. The giant granite rock and surrounding area had been held as holy ground by the Native American Indian Chiefs who gathered there for sacred ceremonies. George Van Tassel went on to host 17 Spacecraft Conventions at Giant Rock that attracted thousands of people. In August of 1953, aliens from the planet Venus,invited Van Tassel to enter their spaceship.
In January 1978, "Proceedings," a quarterly publication of the College of Universal Wisdom, reported that the Integratron was 90 percent complete. Jody Curtis is a freelance writer, voice-over artist and web designer who enjoys spiritual growth and all things esoteric or unexplained. The Joshua Tree, the largest of the yuccas, originally grew in only two places in the world - California's Mojave Desert, and the Middle East in Jerusalem. The Israelites are said to have named this species "Joshua" Tree because it mimicked the Old Testament prophet Joshua, with his arms outstretched, waving them on toward the promised land. The Joshua Tree grows at altitudes between 1,300 and 5,900 feet and likes dry soil on plains, slopes and mesas. Like most desert plants, their blooming is dependent on rainfall at the proper time (although, too much rain can cause them to topple over due to their shallow root system and top-heavy branches). Generations of Southwestern Native American Tribes still identify this plant as a valuable resource and call it "humwichawa".
This tall, shaggy, yucca lends itself to favorable nesting or resting sites for many birds and reptiles.
There is some concern that Joshua trees will be eliminated from Joshua Tree National Park due to climate change, and that this will damage and fundamentally transform the ecosystem of the park. The Joshua Tree is protected by the U.S government and you must have permission to cut one down even if it is on your own property.
Being an orphan, Ding Le Mei vowed that his new city would include an orphanage, as well as a nursing home, organic farm, housing for the homeless, spiritual centers, a school, and a variety of classes and teachings. Ding Le Mei risked his life on a mapping expedition and spiritual quest across China in the early 1900s as he entered Tibet. As these teachings are sacred and rare, they were closely guarded for those who are seekers of Truth.
When Dingle arrived in the Mojave Desert and discovered this pristine piece of desert land, he said he witnessed a great light from above and was told that this was indeed the place to build the Institute and the City of Joy, and that roads would be made to carry people to this place of respite. Ding Le Mei passed from this life in 1972, but his dreams of the New City are very much alive today in the hearts and minds of the hundreds of thousands of students of Mentalphysics. Kevin Collins and Jody Curtis are Teachers of the Science and Mentalphysics and the 8 Key Breaths. The Animal Blessing at the Institute of Mentalphysics was a success with Venerable Michael Lobsang Yeshe leading the group in reciting "The King of Prayers".
All of the animals (and their people) seemed to be enjoying themselves on a sunny Desert Sunday outside in front of the Sanctuary.
The Joshua Tree Retreat Center at the Institute of Mentalphysics has a variety of ongoing events and classes available to the public. All expenses are met by donations from people who, having completed a course and experienced the benefits of Vipassana, wish to give others the opportunity to also benefit. County Supervisor Neil Derry and Joshua Tree Municipal Advisory Council member David Fick both expressed opposition to the notion. The first-phase development plan to construct a center for 60 students has just been completed, and Dhamma Vaddhana opened for courses in May 2011.
It was taught in India more than 2500 years ago as a universal remedy for universal ills, an Art of Living. Progress at the site can be witnessed first-hand at the main old student page of the website, where a web-cam is broadcasting a new photo of the building every five minutes. Now Kaiser Ventures is asking the Supreme Court to review the case, and the Department of the Interior has until February 25th to weigh in.


The agency's position could impact whether or not the Supreme Court agrees to hear the case.
Secretary Salazar needs to hear from us this week that he must act to protect Joshua Tree National Park.
He went on to become a flight test engineer for both Lockheed International and Douglas Aircraft. It is reported that Howard Hughes would land his plane just for a piece of pie made by Van Tassel’s wife, Eva. The remote location and spiritual significance of the area drew many seekers and UFO enthusiasts to the California Desert. George Van Tassel had planned to be the first to test the new machine, yet sadly, 3 months later, the same publication carried his photo on the cover and his death notice inside. Visitors from a wide variety of disciplines are drawn to the Integratron to experience enhanced energy fields and healing. Archaeological evidence indicates that the Joshua Tree dates back to the Pliocene Epoch, some two million years ago.
The Joshua Tree has two sets of root systems, one stores any surplus water and develops the bulbs.
Their ancestors used the rootlets to make a red dye, and made rope, sandals, mats, and baskets from fibers obtained from the leaves. There is also concern about the ability of the trees to migrate to favorable climates due to the extinction of the giant Shasta ground sloth 13,000 years ago; ground sloth dung has been found to contain Joshua tree leaves, fruits, and seeds, suggesting that the sloths might have been key to the tree's dispersal. In 1941 the Mentalphysics Spiritual Teaching and Retreat Center was dedicated in Yucca Valley (now Joshua Tree).
For those who are not familiar with Vipassana Meditation, an Introduction to Vipassana by Mr. At this time, the interior walls have been closed-in, and preparations are being made for the installation of the kitchen equipment.
It was in California that he met Frank Critzer, a German immigrant trying to make a living in the desert as a prospector. Van Tassel believed the rock's crystalline structure possessed great channeling power by virtue of its piezoelectric characteristics -(electricity resulting from pressure).
He likened this form of communication to television where different channels convey information on different carrier frequencies. The Integratron would be a multi-frequency, electrostatic charger for the human body, capable of collecting up to 50,000 volts of static electricity from the atmosphere. Many people agree that an overnight stay at the Integratron is equivalent to a relaxing vacation and that a Sound Bath results in waves of peace, heightened awareness, and complete relaxation of the mind,body, and spirit.
Once they bloom, the trees are pollinated by the yucca moth, which spreads pollen while laying her eggs inside the flower’s ovaries.
The yucca night lizard usually exists in close proximity to Joshua trees, inhabiting dark rotting hollows and feeding on the abundance of insects associated with this tree. The center is used today not only by students of Mentalphysics, but also by many individuals and retreat groups seeking a quiet, peaceful place for spiritual contemplation and training. This blessing is done by generating a positive mind of love & compassion for all living beings, including the animals present. Critzer had established an airfield and was living under "Giant Rock," reputed to be the world's largest boulder in the middle of the Mojave Desert. The 16-sided dome is built of wood and concrete and held together by glue and gravity-electrically neutral materials. Originally thought to be members of the Agave (Century Plant) Family, the Joshua Tree and other yuccas have been reclassified as members of the Lily (Liliaceae) Family. The eggs hatch into small translucent green worms which feed on the yucca seeds, and eventually become the moths that allow the tree to reproduce.
They produced an alcoholic beverage from the fermented buds and flowers, and used the lightweight bark for bowls and dishes. Woodrats frequently build nests in the fallen trunks of Joshua Trees, and use the leaves as nesting material. He had excavated about 400 square feet of space under the rock and lived in the cool, dark cavern year-round.
The other set is a shallow, yet extensive root system, with roots only reaching down a couple of feet, yet spreading wide, up to 36 feet away. Joshua Trees (and most other yuccas) rely on the female Pronuba (or Yucca) Moth for pollination. During infrequent rain showers, the concave shape of the leaves captures the water and directs it to the trunk and roots.
As far back as 1883, the pulp of the Joshua Tree was used to make paper for the London Daily Telegraph.
With the advent of Mentalphysics, and consequent enlargement of my faith, it expanded, as most of my beloved students are aware. During World War II, Critzer came under suspicion as a German spy and was killed in a raid on his dwelling in 1942. In 2005, a geophysicist measured the earth's magnetic field for up to 15 miles in every direction from the Integratron and then inside the dome, and proclaimed that there is a significant, unexplainable spike in the earth's magnetic field in the center of the Integratron.
In fact, the female Yucca Moth has evolved special organs to collect and distribute the pollen onto the surface of the flower. The thick foliage tends to create a still-air zone around the tree, reducing the drying effects of the desert winds. High processing and transportation costs eventually put an end to its use in the paper industry.
Without the moth's pollination, the Joshua Tree could not reproduce, nor could the moth, whose larvae would have no seeds to eat. Although old Joshua Trees can sprout new plants from their roots, only the seeds produced in pollinated flowers can scatter far enough to establish a new grove.
The external road improvement plans are substantially complete, and internally, the roads and pathways will soon be surfaced.
Though much of the construction has been done by hired construction contractors, old student involvement has been integral to the development and design of the project.
