Sangha Description: 


The mission of the Triangle Insight Meditation Community is to help support and deepen the practice of insight or vipassana meditation and related practices, and to explore a variety of topics relevant to the teachings of the Buddha. Our intention is to bring forward into this setting the insights we have discovered over many years of practice with our own teachers.  In keeping with the Buddha’s emphasis on “noble friends and noble conversations,” we come together in a community within which to practice and learn about the Dharma, and the relevance these ancient teachings have for us in our contemporary lives.  All levels of meditation experience are welcome, and all gatherings are offered  free of charge, with donations accepted to help with costs for the facility and other expenses, and to support Dharma practice and study for the teachers. If you have any questions or need additional information, please do not hesitate to contact us.
