Napa Valley Insight Meditation offers meditation training and spiritual teachings from Buddhist and other wisdom traditions. We are dedicated to supporting the cultivation of mindful awareness and compassion in daily life. Our mission is to support one another in applying the teachings and practice of mindfulness meditation and loving-kindness within ourselves, our relationships, our work and our society. Our programs include (or will include) meditation classes, daylong retreats, sitting groups, workshops, and other classes.

Most of the teachers and the founding members of NVIM have been trained in the American Insight or Vipassana movement. The Insight tradition focuses on the practice of mindfulness and loving-kindness meditation, and draws mostly on the early teachings of the Buddha. However, it is also a nonsectarian and generally pluralistic stream of Buddhism that is open to all, and is non-religious in nature.

NVIM does not require payment for any of our gatherings, programs or events. The support of our teachers, facility use fees and supplies is done through the voluntary donations of our community.

NVIM's weekly gatherings and sitting groups, events, daylong retreats and classes welcome new and experienced practitioners from all spiritual and meditation traditions. We value diversity and welcome people of every race, nationality, gender, sexual orientation, age, and physical ability. To find out more about upcoming events, please check out our calendar.
