Our Vision: The Insight Meditation Community of Berkeley promotes Buddhist teachings and meditation practices primarily from the Theravadan tradition.
We do this in a spirit of community with members helping each other to develop and embody the qualities of clarity and kindness that are central to the teachings.
(If you’re looking for something specific, place words in our Search box above and we will return all the pages that have those words or names in it. Very useful.)
We come together every Thursday from 7:30 to 9:30 pm to meditate (45 minutes), announcements (5 minutes), socialize (10 minutes), and then listen to a talk and discuss the dharma (1 hour). Our address is:
Berkeley Buddhist Monastery
2304 McKinley Ave (at Bancroft)
Berkeley, CA 94703

Online Community Survey
We want to know how we can support your dharma practice, what dharma topics you’d like to hear, how to best welcome people, and what projects you may be interested in. We’ve created an Online Survey that will give us an idea of how to best serve your needs and the needs of our community.
May our coming here together be of benefit to all beings everywhere.
