City retreat Vipassana meditation weekend in Karunika, Meerhuizenplein 38, Amsterdam.
For meditators who have some prior experience of Vipassana mediation. Registration is required. The sessions will be guided by Aad Verboom.
This weekend offers the opportunity to practice intensively in order to purify your mind and look deeply within yourself to acquire new insights. The practice will consist primarily of sitting and walking meditation. After the meditation sessions, there will be ample time to evaluate and discuss how your personal experience compares with theory.

Please note the measures against Covid-19 / Corona
From our point of view on buddhist ethics Covid-19 is a risk for teachers and participants as well as for those present to contaminate others. We have therefore chosen to limit access to physical activities to those who can show themselves to be protected. This according to the measures of the Dutch government (https://www.government.nl/topics/coronavirus-covid-19/covid-certificate).
If you wish to join, make sure you can show the Corona check app with the QR code. Alternatively, you may show the ‘yellow book’, filled in by the GGD or your general practitioner. Also, you may show a PCR test with negative result done no longer than 36 hours before the event.
We are aware of the fact that in this way proof of protection against Covid-19 does not include proof from ‘alternative’ or ‘non-regular’ medicine. We hope that this will be possible in the near future. For questions and comments please e-mail email@example.com.
Finally, on 23 march the government has considerably reduced the Corona measures, but there is still a very high number of contagions. Therefore Dhammadipa chooses to continue the current policy for now.
- The city retreat is being offered on the basis of dana (a voluntary contribution); with a suggested amount of € 35 per day.
- At the end of the day or weekend, there will also be the opportunity to donate extra for the meditation guidance and teachings.
- The dana can be offered via a bank transfer to the Dhammadipa, Amsterdam account number NL85 INGB 0005019113, mentioning ‘vipassana city retreat june 2022’.
- There is also a dana box so that you may offer dana in cash.
