Monthly meditation day

We will organize several meditation days in 2024.

These Meditation Days are geared towards:

  • people who at least have completed a basic course and want to have the opportunity to practice with a teacher outside of a retreat;
  • people who are interested in this meditation technique and want to get a first glimpse into the practice.

During a meditation day, you will have the opportunity to practice under the guidance of our teacher Carmen Karsters and deepen your understanding of or respectively get to know the Vipassana mediation practice. The instruction will be given in Dutch and/or English.

The meditation days start at 08:30 and lasts until 16:30.

Should you be interested in participating in one of our Meditation Days, please contact us at Upon registry, we will send you further information.

According to the tradition the Buddhist teaching is supposed to be offered for free, as in this way it is accessible for anyone. Following this precedent there will be no mandatory expenses for your participation. To make these meditation days possible in the future, we ask for voluntary contribution, to make sure we can also afford renting a location the following meditation days. Besides a donation for these expenses you are also able to give a donation to the teacher as they work on voluntary basis.

Through your donation you enable future students to participate.

Dana – Generosity

Santi Dhamma is a very young and small organisation. In accordance with Buddhist tradition, the organisation itself, operates on donations only. However, since we do not own any property to run our courses in, we do require people participating in one of the courses to pay for their accommodation and food.

Should you want to support the Santi Dhamma organisation and our activities, any amount of donation is highly appreciated and allows us to continue our work. Your donations will be used to cover the organisation’s expenses in terms of running the foundation, the website, administrative expenses as well as enabling people to participate in our courses who cannot afford to pay the full price. Also, any surplus funds will be directed towards building up a permanent meditation centre, aiming at ultimately providing the full experience on a donation bases only.

Thank you for your kindness, compassion and goodwill!

“Better than one hundred years lived
With an unsettled mind,
Devoid of virtue,
Is one day lived
With insight and absorbed in meditation.


Better it is to live one day
 seeing the rise and fall
 than to live a hundred years
 without ever seeing the rise and fall.”

   – The Dhammapada -the sayings of the Buddha, verse 111 & 113 –
