About Madison Vipassana Retreats

All of our retreats are in "noble silence" and consist of sitting meditation, walking meditation, and Dhamma instructions. They are suitable for both beginning and experienced meditators. Clear and simple instruction will be presented throughout the retreat. At residential retreats a longer discourse on the dhamma will be presented each evening. Retreats are held in silence except for question & answer periods when meditators ask questions of the teacher, either through submitted written questions, or in small group interview sessions. Sitting meditation periods of 45 minutes will alternate with periods of walking meditation throughout each day. Details about fees are provided with the information posted when the retreat registration opens.
