Dhamma Padipa Vipassana Centre
Offering residential courses in Vipassana meditation as taught by SN Goenka in the tradition of Sayagyi U Ba Khin
The technique of Vipassana meditation is a practical way to achieve peace of mind and live a happy, productive life. It is learned by attending a 10-day residential course with a qualified teacher where the student is free from distractions so that the reality within can be observed. This technique helps practitioners come out of suffering; it is non-sectarian and is suitable to all people regardless of religion, gender, race or nationality. Before applying for a course you should read and accept the code of discipline which explains what Vipassana is and is not, and what is expected of you when attending a course, which is a serious undertaking.Read more
All courses offered at the Vipassana Meditation Centre, Dhamma Padipa, are conducted by assistant teachers of S. N. Goenka using audio and video recordings of Mr. Goenka’s instructions and discourses. All ten day courses begin the evening of the arrival day and end early morning of the departure day.
Please note that many courses are full 2-3 months in advance. We encourage you to apply early in order to allow time to make travel arrangements once registered. An application is required to register for all courses.
Dhamma Padipa is located in a rural setting about two hours from Perth. The centre offers regular 10-day residential courses in Vipassana meditation. The facilities at the centre include the meditation hall, kitchen/dining facility, accommodation and ablution blocks. There are camping sites under shelters and in treed areas.Read more

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