Residential meditation courses in Australia

In the tradition of Sayagyi U Ba Khin as taught by S N Goenka

The technique of Vipassana meditation is a practical way to achieve peace of mind and live a happy, productive life. It is learned by attending a 10-day residential course with a qualified teacher where the student is free from distractions so that the reality within can be observed. This technique helps practitioners come out of suffering; it is non-sectarian and is suitable to all people regardless of religion, gender, race or nationality. Before applying for a course you should read and accept the code of discipline which explains what Vipassana is and is not, and what is expected of you when attending a course, which is a serious undertaking.

Vipassana is a practical technique which enables one to lead a more positive, balanced and happy life.

This path of self-development through self-awareness is remarkable in its simplicity, its lack of dogma and above all its results.

The basis of any healthy, harmonious society is always the healthy and harmonious individuals who populate it. Only if each individual has a pure, peaceful mind can we expect peace in society.
-- S N Goenka
