12 week Vipassana Meditation Course

On 30th April we begin our online meditation course in its revised 12 week format. It provides a great opportunity to start learning to meditate - or to develop an existing mindfulness practice in the company of others from around the world. We will focus on developing a fruitful and sustainable meditation practice.

Vipassana Fellowship's courses have been offered since 1997 and they have proven helpful to meditators in many countries. The 12 week course serves as a practical introduction to samatha (tranquillity or serenity) and vipassana (insight) techniques. Intended primarily for beginners, of any faith or none, the course is also suitable for experienced meditators who wish to explore different aspects of the tradition. The emphasis is on building a balanced meditation practice that is compatible with home life.

The course offers daily material for each of the 12 weeks, interaction between participants and support from the tutor. Participants also have access to an audio supplement containing guided meditations and chants to support the online material. The course will be led by Andrew Quernmore, an experienced meditation teacher based in England.

The course begins on April 30th and ends on July 22nd. Application details and further information is available here:
