How To Approach
This New Beginning

This Astonishing Mystery Called Life

We are stardust that somehow came alive and no one knows how or why
that happened – no one knows what created life. Yet here we are – alive
on a tiny speck of dirt and water floating through endless space. For
most people including us, this mystery called life is most sacred, and
it fills us with awe and wonder. This site is about how to relax into
this mystery and be present in it every moment.

This site is
about being more aware of what’s obvious, not about finding something
that’s hidden. It’s about connecting with what’s sacred through your
experiences, not through beliefs or faith. Our experience is that life
is already so filled with sacredness that faith and beliefs need not
figure in.

In short, this site is about how to replace
words and thoughts about life with your direct experiences of life, and
how to then evaluate and trust your experiences. It is about connecting
directly with sacredness through increasing inner peace, love,
fellowship, and goodness in your life.

Another Approach

Long ago our ancestors created religions and spiritualities that
promised inner peace, love, fellowship, goodness, and connection with
what’s most sacred. Today most people still want those promises
fulfilled but many now distrust traditional religions and spiritualities
because those often divide society and separate people from one

The view on this web site is that traditional
religions and spiritualities do provide ways to fulfill those promises,
and some of those ways are described on this site along with new ways of
fulfilling those promises developed by medicine and science in recent
years. However our view is also that traditional religions and
spiritualities are based on a flawed principle that undermines the
fulfillment of those promises, that divides society, and that separates
people from one another:

Traditional religions and a great many
spiritual teachings today are based on the flawed principle that someone
else knows better than you what’s best for you. They require you to
accept that they alone know how to connect you with what’s sacred and
provide you with inner peace, love, fellowship and goodness. By
accepting that requirement you thereby give them your power and your
authority, which disempowers you and empowers them. They can then tell
you what’s best for you because you gave them the power and authority to
do so.

This web site is based on a different principle, which is
that you know better than anyone what actually works best for you; that
you know better than anyone what increases or decreases your inner
peace and brings you closer to what is most sacred. With this approach
you do not give your power to some other authority – you retain your
power and you are the authority.

With this approach you continue
to learn by watching how others do things but you then decide what works
best in your life. With this approach you choose friends and advisors
who agree to be good listeners and provide their perspectives, and to
respect you by not pushing their agendas and beliefs on you.

short, this web site is about learning to trust yourself and build your
self-confidence. It’s about learning to connect with your intuition and
trust what it’s telling you. It’s about learning to see and think for

Through your own eyes you learned what the moon looks
like: how could you learn that through the eyes of someone else? In that
same way learn for yourself what expands inner peace, love, fellowship,
goodness and what is most sacred in your life.

Good luck.

We live two lives: we live life in our thoughts and we live life as our

diminishes and

our experience of the present moment predominates. Freedom comes

We are living in the dawn of a new beginning. Traditional religious and
spiritual ways are in decline and new ways are replacing them. This is

happening because people want inner peace, not just promises of inner
peace. People want to experience what is sacred directly, not through
the words of middlemen. People want lives filled with love and
fellowship, not lives filled with stress and separation. People want
communities that truly have their back, not communities that let the

Privacy Policy

Thank you for visiting the Vipassana Meditation Website. Your privacy
is important to our organizations. To better protect your privacy, we
provide this notice telling you about our information practices and the
things you should be aware of about how your information is collected
and used both at this site and in general by the many local or regional
Vipassana organizations around the world. However, please note that the
specific details of the privacy policies of the Vipassana organizations
around the world may differ from country to country. A copy of the
particular privacy policy applicable to your information may be obtained
from the Vipassana course registrar or at the Vipassana course site
upon your arrival. Click here to download a PDF copy of Privacy Policy.
The Information We Collect

If you choose to register for a Vipassana meditation course via our
on-line or conventional registration application, the types of
personally identifiable information that may be collected include: name,
address, e-mail address, telephone number, fax number, and all the
other highly personal information that is called for on the application
form and on the course registration form. Your personal information
contained in your course application and registration forms are stored
in a secure manner within our facilities and the only persons having
access thereto are those who have a specific “need to know”, such as the
course registrar, the center/course manager and the assistant
teacher(s) conducting the course(s) to which you seek admission.

If you choose to utilize our “Tell A Friend About Vipassana” service you
necessarily submit both yours and another person’s e-mail address to
send an electronic greeting and the address of our website to that other
person. The types of personally identifiable information that may be
collected about you by that service is your email address and the types
of personally identifiable information that may be collected about the
other people at these pages includes the recipient’s email address. We
also may collect certain non-personally identifiable information when
you visit our website pages such as the type of browser you are using
(e.g., Firefox, Netscape, Opera or Internet Explorer), the type of
operating system you are using, (e.g., Windows, Mac OS or Linux) and the
domain name of your Internet service provider (e.g., America Online,
How We Use Your Information

We use the
information you provide about yourself in your application and
registration forms to enable the local or regional Vipassana
organization to which you have applied to evaluate your application for
admission to a course and to register you for that course. In addition,
we have found that people who attend a Vipassana course frequently
attend subsequent courses over their lifetime. In order to facilitate
subsequent attendance at courses and to maintain a record of a student’s
history and experience the local or regional Vipassana organization(s)
may maintain the course data of each student indefinitely in the absence
of a legal prohibition to do so in certain jurisdictions. In some
cases, the local or regional Vipassana organization may use your name
postal address and/or email address to send you information about
Vipassana related activities and facilities, if you have not opted-out
of such contact. We use the information that you provide about others in
our “Tell a Friend” service to enable us to send them your greeting and
our website address. We sometimes use the non-personally identifiable
information that we collect to improve the design and content of our
site and to enable us to understand who is accessing our site from which
locations and which files they are accessing within the site, i.e., to
use this information in the aggregate to analyze site usage. This
Vipassana Website does not ever make your personally identifiable
information available to third parties, for commercial or any other
reason. However, certain regional Vipassana websites may accept credit
card based donations, in which case, personal information related to
those donation financial transactions is processed in the usual manner.
Otherwise, we do not disclose your personal information outside of the
facilities of the local or regional Vipassana organizations and their
common infrastructure except when required to do so by law, for example,
in response to a court order or subpoena. We may also disclose such
information in response to a law enforcement agency’s request or other
legal requirement.

All teachers and assistant teachers of
Vipassana as well as all meditation center staff and Dhamma workers only
have access to your information submitted on the course application and
registration forms on a “need to know” basis. Through confidentiality
agreements and other documentation, we take all reasonable steps to
ensure that such information is maintained in confidence and safeguarded
against disclosure to or access by third parties once it reaches the
center or the non-center course registrar to which it is submitted.
However, the particular manner in which your information is maintained,
stored and used is governed by the particular privacy policy applicable
within the country where the particular course for which you are
registering is being held. The only risk of inadvertent disclosure of
your information can be in the case of applications submitted by email
and that is while the information is being sent over the open internet,
as under some circumstances our email application facilities are not
secure. Please do not use the email application facility on this website
unless you are prepared to personally take this risk.

application forms and the personal data contained therein are handled by
storage and processing on computers. In addition, the computers of the
different Vipassana organizations are located in various countries of
the world. Your submission of an application form to attend one of our
courses constitutes your unequivocal consent to the storage and
processing of your application data on a computer and to the
cross-border transfer of your personal information contained in the
application form as well as the handling and storage of all information
you submit to us in the registration process in accordance with the
privacy regulations of the local jurisdiction. In addition, in some
cases the email service of a center to which an application is submitted
may be provided through Google Apps. As a result the handling of the
data in your application to that center is subject to the privacy and
security policies of Google, as set forth in their publications that are
available on their websites. For the welfare of the students, the local
or regional Vipassana organization may consider it necessary to take
and retain notes on any health concern or behavior in relation to the
course that is inconsistent with the Code of Discipline or that
otherwise indicates that a student should be restricted from attending
future courses or will need additional support during a future course.
In the rare event of this occurring, it is our understanding that the
local or regional Vipassana organization will ensure that such notes
will be entered on a computer and shared in confidence with assistant
teachers and authorized course registrars involved in future courses.
Your attendance at a course will constitute unequivocal consent to the
handling and storage of such notes and the cross-border transfer thereof
subject to applicable laws, including those discussed below (“Specific
Privacy Requirements”). Should you wish to know more about how such
notes are retained you should contact the local or regional Vipassana
organization to determine what its privacy policies are concerning such
notes and other personal data.
Collection of Information by Third-Party Sites

This Privacy Policy only addresses the use and dissemination of
information that we collect from you. Our website may contain links to
other sites whose information practices may be different than ours.
Visitors should consult the other sites’ privacy notices as we have no
control over information that is submitted to, or collected by, these
third parties. Since the various Vipassana organizations do not control
the privacy policies of third parties, you are subject to the privacy
customs and policies, if any, of that third party, and the vipassana
organizations shall not be responsible for the use or dissemination of
your personal information by that third party. Therefore, we encourage
you to ask questions before you disclose your personal information to

amount of information which our server downloads to your personal
computer when you visit our website. The file contains a unique number
so that our server knows which PC it is talking to. We create a session
cookie when you use our online application form to register for a
course. We also use a session cookie to know whether you have logged in
as an old student or not. Some cookies are allocated to your PC only for
the duration of your visit to a website, and these are called session
based cookies. These are automatically deleted when you close down your
browser. Some other “regional” Vipassana websites may also use cookies.

such personal information without the requisite and verifiable parental
consent, we will delete that information from our database as quickly
as is practical.
Specific Privacy Requirements

Vipassana organizations around the world have developed specific privacy
policies to comply with these requirements that may differ in specific

Hello one and all…

It’s that time of year again: the annual recruitment drive for TeachLing, the world’s
biggest online community for university linguistics teaching! As the serendipity and
adventure of conference season winds down, as people change jobs (or finally get
jobs), as the ivory tower ushers us back and the lecture halls beckon us into their
warm embrace, now is the time to join our online community. We currently have 793
members from all over the world, and regular useful discussions about a delightful
diversity of pedagogical topics and subdisciplinary areas! What’s not to like??

As if all this wasn’t exciting enough, this year I thought I’d remind everyone of a
resource I put together in 2014, and kept updating regularly since. It’s a full list
of all the linguistics-related strips from my favourite web comic, XKCD: Useful in bringing presentations to life! For other comics
related to linguistics, there’s also this page by Hal Schiffman (U Penn):
TeachLing are usually more academically robust, honest.)

ANYWAY… down to business: joining TeachLing! Please do join our little community by
adding your email address here: (People on mobile toys will
need to tap the little pencil icon in the top right, then install the Google Docs app
if it isn’t already installed.)

Feel free to forward this message far and wide, and please share the tweet
announcement too!

See you on TeachLing :)
