Vipassana Singapore

Offering courses in Vipassana Meditation as taught by the late S.N. Goenka in the tradition of Sayagyi U Ba Khin.

Introduction to Vipassana Meditation

Vipassana, which means to see things as they really are, is one of the most ancient techniques of meditation. The Buddha taught it 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 for an introduction. 

To apply for a course

To learn Vipassana Meditation one needs to develop ones own experience during a residential ten-day course.   Courses are held several times a year in Singapore.

To apply for a course and to understand the requirements, please read the Code of Discipline and find a convenient date in the Course Schedule.

Children and Teenagers Courses

Specially adapted courses give Children (aged 8-12) and Teenagers (aged 13-18) the opportunity to learn Anapana meditation (the first stage in Vipassana) during a one-day course.

Course Checklist

If you will be attending a course, please review the Course Checklist for items to bring with you, general instructions, information on how to get to the course.

Course Fees

There are no charges for the courses, not even to cover the cost of food and accommodation. Courses are run solely on the donation from old students. All the related expenses are fully 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 teachers nor the course helpers receive remuneration; they and those who organise the courses volunteer their time so that more people can experience the peace and harmony.

About the Course site

Courses are usually held at St Johns Island which is located approximately 6.5km south of Singapore. The course site is located on the north-western part of the island. Accommodation facilities are dormitories with shared common bathrooms and toilets.
