Vancouver Vipassana Hall

The Vancouver Vipassana Hall (VVH) is pleased to announce that it has a new home at 1480 Venables Street in between Clark Drive and Commercial Drive.  as of December 15, 2018. With nearly 900 old students in the five neighbouring postal codes and 300 old students in the immediate neighbourhood, this new location has great potential in serving many old students.

The new location is approximately 800 square feet, 200 larger than the current VVH, for the same total cost of $2100 per month. There is ample free parking as well, another improvement from our current location.

We continue to have as a goal to receive $1500 per month in on-going donations for stability going forward with our new up to three year lease. The VVH currently receives $1100 per month in on-going donations. To contribute monthly or to give a one time donation, please go to the donation website and choose the Vancouver Vipassana Hall from the drop down menu.

All meditation events are only for old students. Old students are those who have completed a 10-day Vipassana course with S.N. Goenka or his assistant teachers.
