We are located in Brattleboro, Vermont and offer a rich selection of Dharma courses, retreats and a regular schedule of meditation sittings for those near and far.
Vermont Insight Meditation Center (VIMC) was established in 2005 as a nonprofit, nonresidential urban center for the practice of Insight (Vipassana) meditation. Regular open sittings are offered each weekday and on Sunday. Teachers lead formal teachings three Sundays each month, and evening classes are offered to deepen and strengthen the understanding of the teachings and the actual meditation practice. In addition, we host retreats that are led by many renowned Buddhist teachers.
Insight (Vipassana) meditation is an ancient and direct form of practice that leads to clear seeing into the nature of our hearts and minds, revealing an inherent clarity, openness and ease. Through the continuity of mindfulness in all aspects of daily life, one inclines the mind toward the development of wisdom, compassion, and freedom.
VIMC welcomes people of all races, genders, ages and sexual orientations.
