Prerequisite: Enrollment in the DPP 5 program.
The Dedicated Practitioners' Program (DPP 5) is designed to support serious practitioners of Insight Meditation (Vipassana) in expanding understanding of the dharma and strengthening practice. Structured as an intensive 2-year lay practice period, DPP 5 offers a comprehensive curriculum of the Buddha's teachings.
In addition to 5 training retreats, participants commit to maintaining their own practice, working with the monthly study and practice homework, maintaining contact with their interview teacher and meeting monthly with a study/practice partner. Portions of these retreats, including some meal times, are not in silence.
