You will meditate every morning and evening using 1-hour pre-recorded guided meditations.
These are aided by live online lectures and group meditations which will also be recorded.

All you need is a quiet and comfortable space to meditate and a full commitment to practice.

The course starts on a Friday evening and ends 10 days later on Monday morning.
Live zoom sessions will be on Saturdays, Sundays and the Wednesday at 3PM Bangkok time.

How to apply Vipassana in your daily life to be free from harmful emotions and behaviours
Vipassana, also known as mindfulness meditation, means to see clearly.
In this style of meditation we train ourselves to observe our reality as it is, not as we would like it to be or as we assume it to be. Therefore, we practice without visualisations, mantras or any modification to experience. Only then can we see ourselves as we really are.
By deeply understanding our nature, we learn to overcome harmful emotions, thought and behaviours and master the art of living.
The Vipassana technique has been around since the time of the Buddha (450BC) and while traditionally practised in Buddhist contexts, it is a completely non-religious tool to learn the art of living and helping others.
Reimar was raised in Germany. Growing up, he loved high intensity sports and holds a Taekwondo Black-Belt. Through these he first experienced states of high clarity, flow and presence.
At 18 he moved to Australia to study and work in Economics & Finance. Stress, anxiety and a lifelong struggle with eczema led him to discover Vipassana Meditation. Feeling early benefits, he dedicated himself to the practice alongside his full time job.
He sits multiple Vipassana retreats every year and practices avidly on and off the cushion. He draws mainly from Burmese and Thai Theravada Buddhist teachings. Influential teachers include Culadasa, S.N. Goenka, Mahasi Sayadaw & Sam Harris.
Since COVID, he lives in Thailand, exploring Vipassana meditation and how it applies in other practices such as contact improvisation dance and freediving. Since August he is staying at Wat Sopharam as a student of Ajahn Phra Puttar.
He believes in a balanced and integrated approach that calls for a full engagement in life. First, your practice happens within your life, then, your life happens within your practice.
Inspired to share the benefits of Vipassana, he founded vipassanathome.org in September 2021.
Vipassana at Home can assist you on your journey to deepen your practice.

Live zoom discourses try to make it possible for Europe, Asia and Australia to join most sessions. Not all timezones will be able to watch them live. All discourses will be recorded and shared in case you cannot attend the live sessions.
Yes the course is designed so that you are able to participate.
Guided meditations are shared the day before and you can fit them into your morning and evening routine.
If you are in reasonable physical and mental health and are sincerely and genuinely interested in trying out this practice it will be possible.
It all depends on the commitment you bring to the 10 days and if you are open and willing to apply yourself patiently and diligently, you will surely see tangible benefits.
If you cannot sit cross-legged, we can adjust your posture to sit on a chair or use cushions as help.
Traditionally this technique is taught over 10 days as each day a new step is introduced. To give this technique a fair trial and be able to practice on your own, committing to the full 10 days is highly recommended.
You are free to message the instructor at any time if you need guidance or support or even reach out for 1-on-1. We also organise a Whatsapp group for you to share and connect with other participants. During live sessions, you will also have time for Q&A.
This course is for anyone who wants to be introduced to Vipassana meditation or go deeper into their practice. Not everyone has time or opportunity to attend a full 10 day Vipassana course and this course is meant to serve as a bridge towards full 10 day retreats.
This is a beginner friendly course. If you have never meditated before, have had a casual relationship with meditation or have even attended a Vipassana retreat but want to stabilise and reinvigorate your daily practice, this course is for you.
No, we are not associated with Dhamma.org. The technique taught is very similar to the one taught in S.N. Goenka Vipassana centers but our teaching approach is informed by the facilitators experience in other Vipassana traditions as well.
The course is by no means a substitute to a full 10-day Dhamma.org course. We highly recommend any practitioners to attend a full in-person retreat to really experience the technique.
Offering our courses for free allows us to pass on the Vipassana teachings to those who need it, whatever position they are in. Donations go towards operational costs, supporting the teacher and the monasteries and teachers he learns from.
