Dhamma Dipa is an 11-acre property set in rolling farmland between Hereford and Ross-on-Wye. Purchased in 1991, its peaceful location is ideally suited to serious meditation. The centre has about 50 single rooms and can accommodate 130 students in total.

Courses are also held in other locations in the UK and Ireland

  2. Please carefully read the Introduction to the Technique and Code of Discipline which you will be asked to follow during your course.
  3. Fully and completely fill out all the sections of application form and submit it. An application is required to register for all courses.
  4. Await notification. All correspondence will be through e-mail if you provided one in your application. We aim to respond within two weeks. Please check your spam folder for our email.
  5. If your application is accepted we will ask you to reconfirm a month before the course begins in order to secure your place.
Waiting Lists: Those applying for courses marked as 'Wait List' will only be offered places as they become available due to cancellations. We have a reconfirmation process which typically elicits cancellations 2 to 3 weeks before the course starts. Places can even become available up to the day of the course but there is no guarantee of this.
 
Please note:  All courses are offered subject to availability of assistant teachers, who are volunteers like all course servers.  In the rare event that a teacher is unavailable and the course has to be cancelled we will inform you by email.

All courses are run solely on a donation basis. All expenses are met by donations from those who, having completed a course and experienced the benefits of Vipassana, wish to give others the same opportunity. Neither the Teacher nor the assistant teachers receive remuneration; they and those who serve the courses volunteer their time. Thus Vipassana is offered free from commercialisation.

Old students are those who have completed a 10-day Vipassana Meditation course with S.N. Goenka or his Assistant Teachers. Old students have the opportunity to provide Dhamma Service at the courses listed.

Bilingual courses are courses which are taught in two languages. All students will hear daily meditation instructions in both languages. The evening discourses will be heard separately.

Meditation courses are held at both center and non-center locations. Meditation centers are dedicated facilities where courses are held regularly throughout the year. Before meditation centers were established in this tradition, all courses were held at temporary sites, such as campgrounds, religious retreat centers, churches and the like. Today, in regions where centers have not yet been established by local students of Vipassana who live in the area, 10 Day meditation courses are held at non-center course sites.
