Welcome to Insight Meditation Scottsdale!
We practice in the Western Buddhist Vipassana 'tradition' as taught by Jack Kornfield, Joseph Goldstein and Sharon Salzberg. These teachers brought to the West the teachings of Theravada Masters from the Thai Forrest and Burmese traditions. Vipassana is commonly known in a secular context as mindfulness meditation.
Our sitting group meets from 7-8:30pm on Monday evenings in South Scottsdale and is led by Genevieve Tregor or a guest teacher. We have a 40 minute sit with some guidance followed by a dharma talk and facilitated dharma discussion. First time meditators (no experience necessary!) and long-term practitioners are welcome. This is a drop-in group; join us anytime.
This group is supported entirely by 'Dana', or the practice of generosity; everyone is welcome to attend and offer whatever feels meaningful in their heart, according to their own circumstances. The opportunity to sit together and hear the dharma is considered priceless.
We also offer daylong retreats and occasionally host retreats for visiting teachers. These are announced on both the Meetup site as well as through the Google group list; sign-up information below.
