Vipassana Meditation In The Rocky Mountains

Vipassana Meditation as taught by S.N. Goenka was introduced to Colorado by his students in 1982. The first course was held at a retreat center in Cedaredge, Colorado. The Cedaredge courses continued every summer for many years. At present, courses are conducted at a retreat center in Elbert, Colorado, about 90 minutes south-east of Denver.

From the time of the initial course up until now, the development of the practice of Vipassana has grown greatly in the Rocky Mountain area and continues to do so. RMVA has purchased a property in order to establish a permanent meditation center for the region. Efforts are on-going to develop the site. In the meantime, 10-day Vipassana courses will continue to be offered in Elbert, CO at a rented site.
