Current information about "Corona"

On 10 June the 10-day courses have started again with a reduced number of participants and with safety and hygiene requirements. Participants are expected to follow these requirements meticulously. 

Specifically, this means covering nose and mouth with a face mask in the buildings (except when meditating, in your own room and while eating), keeping a minimum distance of 1.5 m and maintaining a thorough hand hygiene. Server are also required to wear a face mask/visor when working in the kitchen.

However, cancellation of scheduled courses is possible at any time if the situation worsens again.

Because of the current developments, applicants can only be admitted under the following conditions:

  • Your place of residence is in Germany
  • Do NOT belong to any risk group
  • Have not yet taken a course in 2020

Risk areas: If your place of residence or stay is a risk area 14 days before the start of the course or if it becomes a risk area by the start of the course, please cancel your participation immediately! The red-marked districts on the map of Germany (link) of the Robert Koch Institute (RKI) are considered risk areas.

You can find current information on courses outside the center, on 1-day courses and courses for children and young people in the course program.

German Vipassana meditation centre in Triebel

Vipassana means to see things as they really are. During a ten-day course, participants train to heighten their concentration and perception, in order to use them for a deep look at their own physical and mental reality. This exercise gradually develops one's wisdom and equanimity. Negative behaviour patterns, like for example tension, anger, greed and impatience can be diminished step by step, and positive qualities like balance, tolerance, generosity and compassion can be developed.

A course in Vipassana offers the opportunity to learn this art of living, which is also invaluable in everyday life.

In the course schedule of the meditation centre in Triebel there are usually two ten-day courses offered each month.

These courses are taught by assistant teachers of S.N. Goenka, the founder of the Vipassana International Academy in Igatpuri, India.

There are no charges for the courses, not even for food and accommodation. All expenses are covered by donations from people who, having completed a course and experienced the benefits of Vipassana, wish to give others the opportunity to also benefit.

You can apply for a course by clicking on apply in the course schedule. If you wish to have more information, please contact the meditation centre.
