| 1-day courses may begin at 9:00 a.m. or 1:00 p.m. and end at 5:00 p.m. or 7:00 p.m. depending on the location of the course. Please click on the date for the course you wish to attend to see more details, or call the contact number for further information.
| All courses are run solely on a donation basis.
All expenses are met by donations from those who,
having completed a course and experienced the benefits of Vipassana, wish
to give others the same opportunity. Neither the Teacher nor the assistant
teachers receive remuneration; they and those who serve the courses volunteer
their time. Thus Vipassana is offered free from commercialisation.

is systematically explained. These courses are open to serious old students

any other meditation techniques since last 10-day course, have been
