What Is Vermont Insight Meditation Center?
We are a community-based, non-residential center for the practice of Vipassana or Insight meditation, and for the study of Buddhist teachings and mindfulness practice in daily life. We are located in Brattleboro, Vermont. Vermont Insight offers a range of study programs and meditation practice opportunities.
Teachers at Vermont Insight have been practicing Buddhist meditation for 20 years or more. This center follows in the spirit of Insight Meditation Society, Barre, Massachusetts, Cambridge Insight Meditation Center in Massachusetts, and Spirit Rock Meditation Center in California and is part of the greater Insight Meditation or Vipassana Community.
Our Welcoming Community
Vermont Insight Meditation Center welcomes people from all cultural and religious backgrounds, including race, socio-economic class, gender, sexual identity, age, education, and physical ability. We are committed to offering the Buddha’s teachings of liberation and to their application to every aspect of daily life. We recognize that for many people, everyday life means being subject to social injustice on a regular basis. As a community and organization, we are committed to freedom for all beings. May all of us cultivate wisdom and compassion and recognize the interdependence of all beings everywhere.
