Old students who would like to help with any of the courses are warmly welcome, especially on the day before the courses start. If you would like to help with the organization of any of these courses or if you would like to give financial support please contact the Vipassana Foundation.
The Dutch Vipassana Foundation is organizing several Vipassana meditation courses in the Netherlands.
Besides several 10-day courses we also offer 1-day courses for old students.
Since there is no permanent Vipassana centre in the Netherlands as yet, the courses are being held at rented locations.
All courses will be conducted in English and Dutch.
10-day courses are an introductory course to Vipassana Meditation where the technique is taught step-by-step each day. The courses begin after a 2-4 pm registration period and orientation, followed by 10 full days of meditation, and end the morning of the 11th day by 7:30am.

Old Student short courses (1 or 3 days) are for any student who has completed the 10-day course with S.N. Goenka and his assistant teachers. All old students are welcome to apply to attend these courses, including those where it has been some time since their last course.
A 3-day course is a complete course with Anapana, Vipassana and Metta instructions, and special evening lectures given by Goenkaji. The course starts on day 0 with registration between 14.00 - 17.00 hours and ends on day 4, at approximately 07:30 am.
1 day courses are regularly held in The Netherlands. These courses start at 10 am and finish around 17:30.
