Type of Teacher:
New Haven Insight is a meditation community dedicated to the practice of mindful awareness and compassion, with the goal of decreasing (and ending) stress and suffering for all beings.
We welcome anyone who wishes to practice meditation, regardless of previous experience or spiritual background. Beginners welcome! Our primary meditation practice, based on the teachings of the historical Buddha, are insight meditation (Vipassana) and loving kindness meditation (Metta).
We meet for meditation on Monday and Thursday evenings in Dwight Chapel on Yale’s old campus, and offer half-day meditation retreats approximately six times each year.
