Welcome to the Sunday Morning Insight Meditation Study Group

If you are interested in deepening your meditation practice and understanding of the Buddha’s teachings, we invite you to join us in a study and discussion of talks by esteemed and dedicated Buddhist teachers in the Insight Meditation tradition.
