Hein, J. (2021). Meditation in Minimal Language (MML).

ABSTRACT: In this short presentation I will, first, draw a parallel between (a) the NSM technique of reductive paraphrase, used for word-concept analysis, and (b) the technique of Vipassana (roughly, 'seeing things as they are') meditation, used for body-mind analysis. Second, I will advocate clear, accessible meditation instructions framed in Minimal Language, so that anyone can meditate irrespective of age, language (proficiency), experience, etc. Third, I will invite everyone to a short guided meditation framed in Minimal English.

 

KEY WORDS: NSM, Minimal Language(s), Minimal English, Vipassana, Meditation in Minimal Language (MML)
