Welcome to Flagstaff Insight Meditation Community (FIMC).
We are dedicated to fostering a
welcoming refuge for all people to explore meditation, mindful living,
and the teachings of the Buddha. We are committed to cultivating an
appreciation of the value of diversity and to acknowledging the need to
recognize and dissolve barriers that separate us from each other. We
open our doors and hearts to all social identities including, but not
limited to, all races, classes, sexual orientations, gender identities,
ages, abilities, cultures, and ethnicities.
On Monday, January 5th, at 7PM, there will be a Dharma talk followed by a sitting meditation. Please stay for an optional discussion afterwards, beginning around 8:15PM. Please see Activities & Location for more details and location information.

The End of Suffering
A 2-day Silent Vipassana Meditation Retreat
March 16 & 17, 2019
Saturday & Sunday
Register by March 2, 2019
Do you think the end of suffering is too ambitious a goal for a weekend retreat? Think again! (Or, maybe, don’t think at all.)
In this retreat, we seek to uncover what creates our unhappiness and discontent here and now, and how to release ourselves to greater contentment and ease. We use experiences both on and off the cushion to help us find freedom from suffering and touch the peace that comes from knowing ourselves beyond the transient conditions of our lives.
This retreat provides an opportunity to practice continuous mindfulness in silence throughout the weekend in sitting and walking meditation. We use the silent space of the retreat to be present with the flow of experience, and the deeper spaciousness and stillness that underlies that experience. This retreat is designed for beginners and experienced practitioners.
One of the unique qualities about the FIMC is its commitment to offering all events freely, which allows us to co-create a culture of open-hearted and reciprocal generosity. Within this context, there are a variety of opportunities for volunteers.
