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.

The center is located at 10850 County Road 155 A, Kaufman, TX.

Having done a number of courses here, I can recommend this center and Mr. Goenka's brand of vipassana without reservation. The facilities are excellent, and the teachings are the teaching of the Buddha presented succinctly and comprehensibly. All in all, a wonderful place to tread the path of dhamma.
