May your Vipassana course prove most beneficial to you.With best wishes for a successful Vipassana course, please read the following information carefully before applying. 

10-Day Courses are the introductory course to Vipassana Meditation, where the techniques are taught step-by-step each day. 

Vipassana is a simple and practical technique to achieve real peace of mind, enabling one to lead a happy, wholesome life. It is a logical process of mental purification through self-introspection. Although Vipassana is an essential part of Buddha's teaching, it contains nothing of a sectarian nature, and can be accepted and applied in life by people of any background. Buddha himself taught Dhamma (the way, the truth, the path). He did not call his followers "Buddhists"; he referred to them as "Dhammists" (those who follow the truth). The technique works on the basis that problems faced by all human beings can only be eradicated with a pragmatic method which can be universally practiced.

Vipassana courses are open to anyone over 18 sincerely wishing to learn the technique. Before applying for a course, please read the “Introduction to the Technique and Code of Discipline for Meditation Courses” carefully. Make sure that you are able to sit the full course, follow the daily timetable, and observe all the percepts and disciplines cautiously. Only thus can you get the best benefits from a Vipassana course.

After completing a 10-day course, you will have access to the Old Student website.
