About the Center

Dhamma Mahavana is situated on 109 acres of quiet, beautiful land in the idyllic Sierra Nevada foothills.  Walking trails wrap around groves of oak, pine, cedar, and manzanita trees and skirt a tranquil pond and open meadow.  The center was founded in 1991 and is now a fully developed center offering regularly scheduled residential courses in Vipassana meditation.  Center accommodations provide ideal conditions for meditators to come and learn Vipassana, including cozy residences, a kitchen which provides all food for students, and the meditation hall and pagoda, which are both dedicated solely to meditation.
