WHAT IS VIPASSANA MEDITATION?

Vipassana, which means to see things as they really are, is one of India's most ancient techniques of meditation. It was taught more than 2500 years ago as a universal remedy for universal ills, i.e., an Art of Living. For those who are not familiar with Vipassana Meditation, an Introduction to Vipassana by Mr. Goenka is available.

HOW TO LEARN IT?

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. No previous experience of meditation is required. After reviewing the Code of Discipline for Vipassana courses and checking the course schedule, you may apply for a course.

COURSE FINANCES

Courses are run solely on a donation basis. There are no charges for the courses, not even to cover the cost of food and accommodation. All expenses are met by donations from those who have completed a course, experienced the benefits of Vipassana, and wish to give others the same opportunity. Neither the teachers nor those who help at the centre recive any payment but volonteer their time.

APPLY EARLY

Please note that many courses are full. We encourage you to apply early in order to allow time to make travel arrangements once registered. An application is required to register for all courses.
