Vipassana is one of India's most ancient techniques of meditation taught more than 2500 years ago. It offers a remedy for universal ills through a practical method of self-awareness, allowing one to face the tensions and problems of daily life in a balanced way. For those who are not familiar with Vipassana Meditation, an Introduction to Vipassana by Mr. Goenka and Questions & Answers about Vipassana are available.
The Ghana Dhamma Practitioners Organization organizes non-center Vipassana Meditation courses in different locations around Ghana. We usually offer one 10-day course per year as well as short 1-day refresher courses for old students (those who have already taken the ten day course). To learn Vipassana Meditation one needs to develop one's own experience during a residential ten day course. A description and timetable of a typical ten day course may be found in the Code of Discipline.
Course registration can be done online, or by emailing scanned application forms. More details and a list of offered courses is provided on the Course Schedule webpage.
"Old students" are those who have completed a 10-day Vipassana Meditation
course with S.N. Goenka or his Assistant Teachers. Opportunities to serve and
schedule of weekly group sittings available on
Old Student Information Page.
