The Community Meditation Center is located on Manhattan’s vibrant upper west side. With a relaxed and comfortable atmosphere the CMC offers classes, Insight Meditation (Vipassana) instruction and practice, daylong retreats, workshops, and social events. Some of the world’s most renowned teachers join with guiding teacher Allan Lokos as we endeavor to develop greater compassion, lovingkindness, wisdom, generosity, and equanimity. The CMC exists for all who would seek a more joyful and meaningful life.
Moved by the events of September 11, 2001, Susanna Weiss and Allan Lokos founded the Community Of Peace and Spirituality. Over time the community made many friends and became a refuge in a bustling city. In 2008 we shifted our emphasis and became the Community Meditation Center and our focus moved to the study and practice of Insight Meditation in the Buddhist Theravada tradition. Supported by a dedicated Board of Directors and a group of enthusiastic and hard-working volunteers the CMC has flourished and earned a reputation as a joyful place of peace, learning, and tranquility.
