Greetings and welcome to Amelia Insight, first known as the Fernandina Beach Insight Meditation Group which was formed in January 2012 to offer instructions in Insight Meditation.
Amelia Insight is a community-based group that supports the study and practice of Vipassana or Insight Meditation and the practice of mindfulness in daily life.
We offer a weekly sitting group or Sangha, as well as an "Introduction to Insight Meditation Workshop" several times year. Both are freely offered and all are welcome.
"When we develop mindfulness we train ourselves to pay attention to our present experiences, we then can connect deeply and directly with what is actually happening. We can learn to be fully present with what is and in doing so experience happiness and peace that is not dependent on outer circumstances."
"Mindfulness and Insight Meditation comes from ancient Buddhist teachings and has profound relevance for our present-day lives. This relevance has nothing to do with Buddhism per se or with becoming a Buddhist but it has everything to do with waking up and living in harmony with oneself and with the world"
