Welcome to Israel Vipassana Meditation Center
As taught by S.N. Goenka in the tradition of Sayagyi U Ba Khin

The center has returned to operate 10-day courses and the course list is open for registration for a period of 3 months ahead.
Having said that, in light of the conflict situation, course operations will be examined continuously.

Due to the active conflict in Israel, Vipassana courses in Israel are only open to Israeli residents at this time.​

On July 21, 2014, the Israel Vipassana Meditation Center officially opened for its first 10-day course. At a time when millions in this part of the world faced the painful reality of war and conflict, death and destruction, Israel’s old students quietly dedicated themselves to completing the last tasks so that the newly built center could start full operation. The center stands on 42 dunams (about 10 acres or 4.2 hectares) of land at the head of the Jordan Valley, close to where the storied river flows out of the Sea of Galilee. Surrounding it are plantations of date palms and a nature reserve. It is a quiet and pastoral area around two hours from central Israel, with excellent connections to all the major cities.

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. S.N. Goenka or read the About Vipassana page.

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.

Where? Courses are organized at the Israel Vipassana Meditation Center Dhamma Pamoda adjacent to Kibbutz Deganya B, near the Sea of Galilee. There are numerous other Centres throughout the world: see www.dhamma.org
