We would like to welcome you to the Insight Meditation Australia website

We endeavour to make information available that will help you choose teachers, teachings, retreat, courses and various programmes available in Australia.

Insight Meditation, known as Vipassana in the Theravada Buddhist tradition engages in the practice of ethics, mindfulness, depths of meditation, opening of the heart and wisdom teachings.

A variety of programmes are offered throughout the year both residential and non-residential including regular groups, day, weekend and week long retreats, and other supportive courses and events. In the main menu you will find the annual programme of our various teachers, our biographies, dates and locations, descriptions of various courses and retreats and basic instructions for practice in daily life.

Our aim is to make all courses and retreats as inexpensive as possible through volunteer support, covering basic costs, and reliance on donations (dana) from practitioners for our teachers, rather than asking for a teaching fee.

We look forward to seeing you in one of our programmes during the year. It could change your life, your community and your world.

May all live with clarity and wisdom.
