Sangha Description: 

The North Fork of Long Island [NOFOLI] Insight Meditation Sangha provides beginning and experienced practitioners of insight meditation (vipassana) with an opportunity to support their practice by meditating and exploring together the Buddha's teachings in the Noble Eightfold Path.

  • The sangha meets the 3d Sunday each month from 10:45am to 1:00pm for a 45 minute period of sitting meditation followed by a Dhamma talk and a time for questions about the practices of sitting, walking and lovingfriendliness meditation, or developing mindfulness in daily life. An opportunity to socialize with sangha members takes place during a tea following the sitting. 
  • The sangha meets weekly on Tuesday evenings from 6:30pm to 8:30pm for sitting meditation and a Dhamma talk.
  • The sangha offers occasional day-long and non-residential retreats. In addition, there are 6-8 week classes for learning to meditate and for studying the Dhamma.
  • Teacher-student conferences are available to sangha members.There is no fixed fee for these sittings, teachings or conferences. There is an opportunity to practice dana, or generosity, through donations to the teacher.
