What we're about

The Sandy Springs Insight Meditation Group is for people interested in learning about and practicing Insight (Vipassana) Meditation. We are not a teacher-led group but instead a group of practitioners who meet for group meditations and discussion of our practice. Teachers who practice in the Insight or Vipassana tradition include Sharon Salzburg, Joseph Goldstein, Gil Fronsdal, and Jack Kornfield.

We held our first meeting on October 1st, 2009.

Right now (late summer 2022), we're meeting in person on the first and third Wednesdays of every month at 7 p.m. at the Northwest Unitarian Universalist Congregation in Sandy Springs.

Masking is optional; we encourage participants to be fully vaccinated/boosted.

All other Wednesdays, we're on Zoom. https://zoom.us/j/5332665254

Please visit us on our website at www.sandyspringsinsightmeditation.org where you can learn more about our group. If you have any questions or comments, e-mail info@sandyspringsinsightmeditation.org.
