We are a group committed to using the practice of meditation to explore the dharma, the spiritual path delineated by Gautama Buddha 2500 years ago. Our mission is to support the awakening of hearts and minds through the direct experience of the Buddhist path, and the integration and manifestation of wisdom and compassion in all aspects of life, for the benefit of all beings.
Although we call ourselves an Insight, or Vipassana meditation community, our group includes persons of other Buddhist and non-Buddhist spiritual traditions who wish to use meditation to deepen their spiritual practice.
At the heart of insight meditation is the practice of focusing the attention on the breath, thus concentrating and calming the mind. This practice leads to Mindfulness or moment-to-moment observation that results in a clear, stable and non-judgmental awareness.
Mindfulness practice as a spiritual path develops wisdom, compassion, loving kindness, generosity, and virtue.
