Vipassana, which means to see things as they really are, is one of India's most ancient techniques of meditation. It is a universal remedy for universal ills, an Art of Living. View an Introduction to Vipassana by the principal teacher, Mr. Goenka.
The technique of Vipassana Meditation is taught at ten-day residential courses during which participants learn the basics of the method, and practice sufficiently to experience its beneficial results.
All expenses are met by donations from people who, having completed a course and experienced the benefits of Vipassana, wish to give others the opportunity to also benefit.
Worldwide there are now over 170 Meditation Centres. Courses are held in Finland at least once a year. After reviewing the Code of Discipline for the courses in Vipassana Meditation and checking the schedule of courses in your area, you may then make an Application for a course at that location.
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.
