Measures concerning coronavirus: cancellation of all Vipassana activities until further notice

As you have heard from the news, the coronavirus epidemic (COVID-19) is developing rapidly and seriously in Europe.

It is recommended to take vigorous measures quickly and to cancel all courses in Europe until further notice. The situation will continue to be monitored and reviewed in April.

For this reason, all activities of the association are suspended until at least the end of April: This includes all courses in Dhamma Sumeru and non-centre courses, children's courses, work period, 1-Day courses and group sittings.

It is a difficult decision, but it seems that we have no other choice, as health and safety must be a priority.

The President of Dhamma Sumeru

What is Vipassana Meditation?

Vipassana, which means 'to see things as they really are', is one of India's most ancient techniques of meditation. It is a universal remedy for universal ills, an Art of Living. View an Introduction to Vipassana by the principal teacher, Mr. Goenka.

How to learn it?

The technique of Vipassana Meditation is taught at ten-day residential courses. All expenses for these courses are met by donations. Read more about the technique and the rules of a course.


Courses are organised at the Vipassana Meditation Centre Dhamma Sumeru in Mont-Soleil, Switzerland, and at many other centres and temporary sites throughout the world.
