Sangha Description: 

Nirodha organizes insight (vipassana) meditation related events in Finland. We offer weekly meditation evenings, monthly practice days, silent meditation retreats, short events lead by visiting teachers, and other activities. We do not have a teacher in Finland, but our active members facilitate discussions and give meditation instructions for beginners. The teachers of our retreats come from abroad; many of them have received their teacher training at Gaia House, England. The teachings are based on Theravada Buddhism. Many Nirodha events take place in Helsinki, but we have local sitting groups in several other Finnish cities as well.

Everybody is warmly welcome to practise with us!
