What is Vipassana?
Vipassana, which means to see things as they
really are, is one of India's most ancient techniques of
meditation. It was taught in India more than 2500 years ago as
a universal remedy for universal ills, an Art of Living. To those who are not familiar with Vipassana Meditation we recommend visiting the International Vipassana Website or viewing an Introduction to Vipassana Meditation video.
