Welcome

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 & related videos and Questions & Answers about Vipassana are available.

Courses

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.

Introductory Talks and Events

Public talks and screenings of videos about Vipassana Meditation are often organised in the Northern Rivers area in the weeks leading up to a ten day course. These events are generally publicised in community announcements in regional newspapers and radio station broadcasts, and via publicity posters.

Neither the Teacher nor the Assistant Teachers receive remuneration; they and those who organise the courses volunteer their time.
