INTRODUCTION TO VIPASSANA

 

What is 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, i.e., an Art of Living. For those who are not familiar with Vipassana Meditation, an Introduction to Vipassana by Mr. Goenka and Questions & Answers about Vipassana are available.

 

How to learn it?

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.

 

Where?

Courses are being organized in Spain in various locations. Dhamma Neru, a dedicated meditation centre, maintains its own regular program of 10 days courses. Additionally, 10 days and short courses are being organized frequently in the Northwest, South, East, Centre Area, Canaries Islands and Balearic Islands areas.
