The technique of Vipassana meditation is a practical way to achieve peace of mind and live a happy, productive life. It is learned by attending a 10-day residential course with a qualified teacher where the student is free from distractions so that the reality within can be observed. This technique helps practitioners come out of suffering; it is non-sectarian and is suitable to all people regardless of religion, gender, race or nationality. Before applying for a course, you should read and accept the code of discipline which explains what Vipassana is and is not, and what is expected of you when attending a course, which is a serious undertaking.


All courses offered at the Vipassana Meditation Centre, Dhamma Santi, are conducted by assistant teachers of S. N. Goenka using audio and video recordings of Mr. Goenka’s instructions and discourses. All ten-day courses begin the evening of the arrival day and end early morning of the departure day.


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.
