Insight Chicago Meditation Community is a Vipassana meditation group active in Chicago since 1997. Our practice is based on mindfulness meditation as taught within the tradition of Theravada Buddhism.

Insight Chicago Meditation Group welcomes both new and old practitioners to sit with us at weekly groups throughout Chicago, to monthly teachings, and to weekend and longer retreats. For help in getting started with Insight Meditation, we offer instruction and readings.




"You can search throughout the entire universe for someone who is more deserving of your love and affection than you are yourself, and that person is not to be found anywhere. You yourself, as much as anybody in the entire universe deserve your love and affection."

- The Buddha
