"To experience emptiness is to experience the shocking absence of what normally determines the sense of who you are and the kind of reality you inhabit."

Center's Description
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, i.e., an Art of Living. For those who are not familiar with Vipassana Meditation, an Introduction to Vipassana by Mr. Goenka is available.

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.

There are no charges for the courses - not even to cover the cost of food and accommodation. All expenses are met by donations from people who, having completed a course and experienced the benefits of Vipassana, wish to give others the opportunity to also benefit.

Excellent 10 day retreat, no cost to attend, very serious, intense purification practice with no distractions, no work exchange, simple, consistent, not a spa experience, simple accommodations and good food - very healthy. Best meditation practice I've experienced.
