Introduction to 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 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 and to understand the requirements, please read the Code of Discipline and then find a convenient date in the Course schedule.

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 Teacher nor the assistant teachers receive remuneration; they and those who organise the courses volunteer their time.

Introductory talks and events
Experienced meditators from time to time organise public talks and screenings of videos about Vipassana meditation.

The centre invites the public to an open day once a year. You may visit the centre also at other times. View the Course schedule for the open day date.

For further information as to when the next Information Morning will be held, please contact the management at Dhamma Aloka.

Listen to talks by Mr S.N. Goenka [Recorded on Mr Goenka's 2002 North American tour in British Columbia, Canada.]
