Newcomers as well as people new to meditation are always welcome to the group. Drop-ins are welcome. We ask that everyone sign up so that we can plan better. By registering you will receive emails containing program information and other announcements, as well as have access to our online forum on Google Groups.

The focus of this group is traditional Buddhist topics such as the Four Noble Truths, the Eightfold Path, the Hindrances, the Three Characteristics, heart practices, etc. given by senior Vipassana teachers from Spirit Rock, Insight Meditation Society, Insight Meditation Center and other Vipassana centers.  

Following a 2,500 year tradition known as Dana, the teachings and meditation sessions represented on this website are offered on a generosity (dana) basis. No one will be denied because they cannot pay. We are encouraging members to pay what their budget and hearts of generosity allow, and/or to sign up for monthly giving on our Donations page.
