Vipassana, which means to see things as they really are, is one of India’s most ancient techniques of meditation. The non-sectarian technique of Vipassana was taught by the Buddha more than 2500 years ago as a universal remedy for universal ills. Students are invited to learn the basics of this technique — also known as an Art of Living, during a residential ten-day course.
Anyone may apply for a course – Vipassana Centers welcome all! Although we all come from diverse beginnings and lead unique lives, when we come to a Vipassana course we are united by a common cause, a common purpose — to solve the mystery of human suffering. As such, the Southeast Vipassana Center seeks to provide a safe environment where persons of varying races, identities, experiences, and abilities can learn and become established in this technique.
