Vipassana Meditation is based upon the preserved words of the Buddha, and also upon the lineage of teacher-to-teacher transmission. As a meditation practice, it starts with ethical values, and proceeds through observation of the impermanent nature of the sensations upon which the sense of self rests. As a path, it is a lifelong communion with deep realities and with fellow practitioners around the globe.

Dr. Paul R. Fleischman was trained in psychiatry at Yale University and had a psychiatric practice for thirty years. He took his course on Vipassana Meditation with S.N. Goenka in 1974. Along with his wife, Susan, he was appointed Vipassan Teacher responsible for Outreach in the West under the guidance of S.N. Goenka. He is the author of The Healing SpiritKarma and ChaosCultivating Inner Peace, and An Ancient Path. He has also written numerous books of prose and poetry.

BCS Program lectures are made possible by the generous support of The Tung Lin Kok Yuen Canada Foundation, in collaboration with the Institute of Asian Research and the Department of Asian Studies at UBC.
