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.

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

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.
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.
