Welcome to the Vipassana Meditation Center
Dhamma Dharā, in Shelburne, Massachusetts, USA, is one of more than 120 centers worldwide offering courses in Vipassana Meditation, as taught by S.N.Goenka and his assistant teachers in the tradition of Sayagyi U Ba Khin. Almost 2,000 students per year attend our residential 10-day meditation courses.
Please check the news page for updates about the center, upcoming courses, events, etc.
Construction Update: Construction in and around the Pagoda (behind the Dhamma Hall) and Teachers Residence (in front of the Dhamma Hall) will be ongoing for the foreseeable future, except during long courses. Heavy machinery, nail guns, construction workers’ voices, etc., will be audible, between 7am and 6pm, in different areas from time to time. We believe students will still reap great benefits from courses, despite the construction noise. If you have applied to sit or serve a course during this period and feel this noise may be too distracting for you and need to cancel, please let us know as soon as possible.
