Sangha Description: 

We bring together a community of people in Austin and Central Texas who practice insight meditation to support each other in the deepening of Dharma practice in our daily lives. We hope that our practice will promote peace and compassion in the world around us and believe that through the sharing of the Dharma we can free ourselves and others from suffering.

We offer weekly meditations, book discussions, beginning meditation instruction and Dharma talks. There are experienced meditators available to provide instruction. We collaborate with other Texas sanghas to offer retreats in Central Texas with visiting teachers from Spirit Rock in Woodacre, CA, Seattle Insight Meditation Society (SIMS) and Insight Meditation South Bay. Newcomers are welcome.

We are a Buddhist group whose practices originate in the teachings of Theravaden Buddhism. However, one need not identify as a Buddhist to take part in these practices. We include people from any (or no) faith tradition.
