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, i.e., an Art of Living. For those who are not familiar with Vipassana Meditation, an Introduction to Vipassana by Mr. Goenka & related videos and Questions & Answers about Vipassana are available on the main dhamma.org site.
One of 16 centers in North America where the technique of Vipassana meditation is taught and practiced, Dhamma Visuddhi is situated on 15 acres of forested property on the bluffs overlooking the Red Cedar river and the town of Menomonie, Wisconsin. The site is within the city limits, and yet very quiet and secluded. Dhamma Visuddhi, a name that means ‘Purity of Dhamma’, is a little more than one hour east of the Minneapolis/ Saint Paul airport in a traditional dairy farming area of western Wisconsin, and is easily reached by regularly scheduled public transport.
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.
