Welcome

NOTE: The Monday sitting group will be meeting on Zoom only on November 29th and December 6th. There will be no in-person option those two Mondays.

COVID-19 Update

Princeton Insight Meditation’s Sunday and Monday groups now meet in-person at Fellowship in Prayer.

We will welcome vaccinated individuals only to our in-person meetings. In addition to being fully vaccinated, we ask that you stay away if you have any symptoms, or if you have been in contact with anyone who has tested positive in the last 10 days. Masks are optional. We continue to host these meetings virtually via Zoom for those unable or uncomfortable meeting in person. You can find more help on getting started in the Zoom Help Center online. Email us at info@princetoninsightmeditation.org to get the Zoom meeting details.


Who we are

We are a group of Princeton-area people who have come together to practice Buddhist insight meditation (vipassana, or mindfulness meditation) and study the Dharma.  Formed in 2005, Princeton Insight Meditation (now a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization) is open to anyone interested in starting or deepening their insight meditation practice through group practice and support.

What we do

The primary activities of Princeton Insight Meditation are two weekly groups: a sitting group on Mondays (7–9pm) and a Dharma study group on Sundays (3–5pm). Both groups meet at Fellowship in Prayer in downtown Princeton (291 Witherspoon Street). Details about both groups, including location map, can be found on the event calendar.

The sitting group is open to everyone: drop-ins are welcome. These meetings include periods of sitting and walking meditation, dharma readings, and group discussion.

The Dharma study group is also open to everyone. We are working together through Andrew Olendzki’s Integrated Dharma Program. Meetings include meditation, readings, and discussion.

Join us!

Everyone is welcome to drop in and join us on Sunday afternoons and Monday nights.  No prior meditation experience is required; we can provide some basic instructions to get you started.  If you want to keep apprised of schedule changes, all-day events, and other news of the group, please sign up for our email list.  You can also e-mail us directly.
