Farewell to Cavite                  

Anicca! The upcoming 1-Day course will be the last course to be held at Sico Farm in Dasmarinas, Cavite on January 29, 2017. Come join us to bid farewell and give gratitude.

10-Day Courses have been cancelled for now as efforts to attain the goal of having a permanent center in the Philippines become a priority alongside with individual and group practice of Vipassana meditation.                        

We look forward to old students coming together in support of establishing the new center for the spread of wonderful Dhamma in the country.
