to Vipassana Meditation
which means to see things as they really are, is one of India's
most ancient techniques of meditation. It was taught in India
more than 2500 years ago as a universal remedy for universal
ills, an Art of Living. To those who are not familiar with
Vipassana Meditation we recommend visiting the international
Vipassana website for an introduction.
To Apply for a Course
To learn Vipassana Meditation one needs
to develop one's own experience during a residential ten day
course. To apply for a course find a convenient date in the Course schedule. This will take you to
the Introduction to the Technique,
the Code of Discipline, the Daily Timetable and the Application Form.
Talks and Events
Public talks about Vipassana Meditation
and other events are periodically scheduled to provide interested
persons with information about the technique.
