The Goa Vipassana Samiti has graciously agreed to do a one-day introductory program for TISA. This would include 3 hours session in morning, 3 hours in evening followed by practice. (Read more about Vipassana by TISA members, to understand how it helps a pws: By Ashish, Tanveer, Pramendra; ed.)

What a wonderful idea! If I was 18 , I would come just to walk on that beach - and try to climb that tree!! No harm in trying!
Traveling around itself is a big education and very empowering. Meeting other pws, leaning from their experiences - and learning Vipassana - this would be like icing on the cake.
Hope our readers well make best use of this opportunity!
