September 19th COVID-19 Related Cancellations & Updates

All New York Vipassana Association in-person activities for the rest of 2020 have been cancelled until further notice. Courses for 2021 have been tentatively scheduled for May/June and August/September.

A pilot program has started which allows old students to sign up for individual time slots for meditation at the NYC Dhamma House.

All group sittings hosted at old students’ homes and children’s courses continue to be suspended.

We will restart activities as soon as we can safely do so, relying on guidance from the CDC, state and local health officials, and prioritizing the safety and well-being of our servers and meditators. We expect to send our next update by October 31st.

If you have completed a 10-day course in this tradition, you can access resources to support your practice.

New York area updates will be posted on We encourage you to visit the nearby center websites, (Massachusetts) and (Delaware), for updates on their courses and activities.

And, as always, if you have any questions, please email us:
