You are welcome to practise Anapana with your friends and families. However, if you are meditating with others, please make sure that:

  1. No one should give any instructions or guidance, whether live or recorded; the only instructions given should be that of Mr. Goenka's Mini Anapana recording.  If anyone has any questions regarding the technique, please feel free to write to us.  Your questions will be answered by a teacher.
  2. There should be no charge whatsoever for attending a Mini Anapana session.  The teaching is free of charge.

Please also note that participants who attend Mini Anapana sessions will not be considered as an "Old Student", so they cannot apply for any Vipassana courses designated as "For Old Students only".
