Dr. Paul R. Fleischman, M.D., is a psychiatrist and a winner of Oskar Pfister Award, an author of eight books, and a teacher of Vipassana. Trained in psychiatry at Yale University School of Medicine, he held a private psychiatric practice for more than 30-years. He was honored by the American Psychiatric Association with the Oskar Pfister Award for being an "...outstanding contributor to the humanistic and spiritual side of psychiatric and medical issues."
Dr. Fleischman has practiced Vipassana meditation under the guidance of Mr. S.N. Goenka for thirty years and has been asked to introduce and explain Vipassana to professional audiences in the West. His eight published books include: An Ancient Path; Cultivating Inner Peace; The Buddha Taught Non Violence, Not Pacifism; Karma and Chaos; and Spiritual Aspects of Psychiatric Practice. Dr. Fleischman is an engaging and inspiring speaker. As a teacher of Vipassana meditation, he speaks perceptively about its value, employing poetic and scientific terminology.
The California Vipassana Center, in North Fork, CA, is dedicated to the practice of Vipassana meditation as taught by S.N. Goenka. This technique gradually eradicates all inner suffering.
Stands of oak, pine, cedar, and manzanita occupy the bulk of the 109-acre site, and are complemented by a tranquil pond and a broad meadow. Wildlife abounds.
The Center is in the Sierra foothills south of Yosemite. The Center is a four hour drive from San Francisco and a five hour drive from Los Angeles, with bus, rail, and air connections an hour away in Fresno.
