The Insight Meditation Community of Berkeley promotes Buddhist teachings and meditation practices primarily from the Theravadan tradition. We do this in a spirit of community with members helping each other to develop and embody the qualities of clarity and kindness that are central to the teachings.
Our teacher, James Baraz, is one of the founding teachers of the Spirit Rock Meditation Center. We meet at 7:30, sit for 40 minutes, take a break to socialize, and have a dharma talk until 9:30. Chairs and cushions are available. The group is large, typically 100 people. There is no fee for the evening, and a donation basket is available.
