News about Dhamma Passaddhi

The Northern Rivers Gold Coast Vipassana Trust is excited to announce that a property that satisfies centre requirements has been found at Tweed Heads. The property is currently for sale, and if there are sufficient donations the Trust would like to buy it. We now have a short period of time to raise the finances, before the opportunity to purchase this property lapses.

Introduction to 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, an Art of Living. To those who are not familiar with Vipassana Meditation we recommend visiting the international Vipassana website for an introduction.

To Apply for a Course
To learn Vipassana Meditation one needs to develop one's own experience during a residential ten day course. To apply for a course find a convenient date in the course schedule and click on the link for the date. This will take you to the Introduction to the Technique, the Code of Discipline, the Daily Timetable and the Application Form.

Dhamma Passaddhi courses
Courses have been held in various rented locations in northern NSW (Northern Rivers) and southern Queensland (Gold Coast) for many years. Ten-day courses for new and old students will recommence in 2017. One-day and three-day courses for old students, and children's and teenagers' courses are listed in the course schedule. New students can apply for ten-day courses at other centres in Australia.

More information on the worldwide movement of Vipassana Meditation can be found on the international Vipassana Meditation website.

Course Finances
Courses are run solely on a donation basis. There are no charges for the courses, not even to cover the cost of food and accommodation. All expenses are met by donations from those who have completed a course, experienced the benefits of Vipassana, and wish to give others the same opportunity. Neither the Teacher nor the Assistant Teachers receive remuneration; they and those who organise the courses volunteer their time.
