On 20thJuly 2019 the Scotland ten-day Vipassana Course at Dhamma Sukhakāri came to a happy end. Over thirty students and servers had travelled down to Stowmarket to attend the course. Most of them used the Coach transfer that was arranged from Glasgow.
They joined students from other places in the U.K., Ireland, France, Spain, Italy, Hungary, Finland, Norway, South Africa, China, and the U.S. The course started with 45 female, and 34 male students. Out of the 79 course students 29 were from Scotland and also 3 Scots were serving.
The centre, Dhamma Sukhakāri is impressively developed and organised, given its short existence and there was good support from a small but committed group of long-term, and local servers.
What people said about the course
Sophie, server:“Serving is a real opportunity to put our meditation practice into second gear and upwards. In many ways it’s rewarding as there are many ways it is challenging. What kept my momentum up, was the love, metta from my fellow servers and the assistant teachers, the determination of the students and the plenty opportunity to soak up the meditation practice. I totally recommend serving. The whole ten days is very special. Be prepared to get your smile quota for the year in these ten days.”
