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. The technique 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 courses all over the world. Additionally you may be interested in our answers to commonly asked questions.
To learn Vipassana Meditation, one needs to develop one's own experience during a residential ten day course. To apply for a course and to understand the requirements, find a convenient Ten Day Course venue and date, click on course dates, carefully read the Introduction to the Technique and Code of Discipline and complete the application fully and completely.
