Specially adapted courses give children and young people between the ages of 8 and 18 the opportunity to learn Anapana meditation (the first stage in Vipassana) during a residential weekend at Dhamma Dipa. The weekends also include physical and creative activities.
Anapana meditation helps develop concentration of the mind and can have many benefits for children. Many experience a positive change in outlook, behaviour and attitude. They develop an inner strength that helps choose right and appropriate actions over wrong actions. Many also find that their memory has strengthened and they are more able to overcome worries and calm their mind.

All application forms must be accompanied by a parent/guardian form, which must be fill out and return to the centre.
