What's offered by the Northwest Vipassana Center
The Northwest Vipassana Center - Dhamma Kunja - celebrated its 20th anniversary last month. Located in rural Washington, just 90 miles north of Portland, the center has offered dozens of 10-day meditation courses on a donation-only basis every year, and shorter courses for children and teen-agers. Vipassana meditation, as taught by S.N. Goenka, aims at self-transformation and the healing of suffering through self-observation. To produce this month's show, Stephanie Potter spoke with four "old students" who share their experiences with the practice.
