Comments on: I stop talking for five days. You won’t believe what happens next. Unconferences, peer conferences, participant-driven events, and facilitation Thu, 20 Aug 2020 12:14:45 +0000 hourly 1 By: Adrian Segar Sat, 25 Aug 2018 13:47:16 +0000 An update. Two years have passed, and I’m about to leave for my second 5-day retreat at Vallecitos. (I’ve attended several shorter Vipassana retreats in the interim.) Although it’s not the reason I’m going (see above) I’ll share that mindful eating has allowed me to consistently maintain my weight ~25 lbs below what it once was.

I’ve also noticed that my overall energy level is much better than in the past. Previously I ran out of steam around dinnertime — now I can stay active into the evening.
