They are called Vipassana Centers and they are all absolutely free.  They are also not associated with any particular religion, don’t sell anything and don’t try to convert anyone.

I honestly had no idea what this was but it seemed like the non-pastry breakfast option so I went for it. Eat first, ask questions later. Breakfast in Japan is a serious affair. It turns…

From Farm to Facebook Aimee’s Farm When you imagine a Norwegian farmer, there are probably a few different images that come to mind, but most likely none of them look like Aimee Larsen.
