The Cambridge Insight Meditation Center (CIMC) was established in 1985 as a nonprofit, non-residential urban Center for the practice of Insight Meditation (vipassana). Located in the heart of Cambridge, CIMC provides an environment where the contemplative life can be developed and protected amid the complexities of city living. Here, people of all religious and secular persuasions can come together to learn, support and deepen practice. Rooted in the Theravada Buddhist tradition, the Cambridge Insight Meditation Center is a welcoming refuge and teaching Center for all who seek inner peace through the liberating practice of Insight Meditation. As a community of practitioners, and as an institution, we endeavor to follow the Buddha’s path of ethics, tranquility, wisdom and compassion. An urban center, CIMC is dedicated to the integration of practice into every aspect of community and daily life.
