San Francisco Insight
The San Francisco Insight Meditation Community is dedicated to offering the teachings of the Buddha as they develop in the West. Our orientation is toward intensive lay practice. We offer classes, meditation retreats and other events as a community (sangha) devoted to the embodiment of awakening in our lives.
Where and When We Meet
We will be meeting via Zoom while we’re unable to meet in person. Current weekly sittings are Sundays from 6:00 pm to 7:30 pm, and starting the week of March 30 also Mondays from 12:00 pm to 1:00 pm and Wednesdays from 6:00 pm to 7:00 pm. See our calendar listings for details.
Classes and Retreats
We regularly offer a variety of beginning meditation courses providing basic Buddhist meditation instructions, Buddhist teachings, and practical suggestions for applying these teachings to our daily lives. We also offer daylong meditation retreats to deepen and mature our practice. Community members are encouraged to engage in intensive meditation retreats at Spirit Rock Meditation Center in Marin County with Eugene or other Spirit Rock teachers.
