Vermont Insight Meditation Center (VIMC) was established in 2005 as a nonprofit, nonresidential urban center for the practice of Insight (Vipassana) meditation. Located in South Eastern Vermont, VIMC is a Buddhist spiritual center dedicated to the study and practice of Insight meditation and to its applications in daily life.  Regular open sittings are offered three mornings a week, formal teachings are offered three out of four Sundays a month, and evening classes are offered to deepen and strengthen the understanding of the teachings and the actual meditation practice.
Insight (Vipassana) meditation is an ancient and direct form of practice that leads to clear seeing into the nature of our hearts and minds, revealing an inherent clarity, openness and ease.  Through the continuity of mindfulness in all aspects of daily life, one inclines the mind toward the development of wisdom, compassion, and freedom. Board of Directors: Judy Coven, Susan Dreyer-Leon, Petria Mitchell, Paula Swenson, Alison Taylor, and Doug Wessel. A meetup for people interested in Buddhist meditation practice who desire more intensive training in the form of day-long or weekend retreats or retreats of longer duration in a safe, friendly, and supportive environment. Northern Rivers, Australia -- The Buddha Dharma Education Association has lodged a DA with Lismore Council for a $2.8 million expansion of the Bodhi Tree Forest Monastery in Tullera. Venerable Pannyavaro says the land was specifically purchased for a sanctuary and hermitage, and said the monks do not see themselves as the owners but rather the custodians of the land. The centre is run by a small team from the Triratna Buddhist Order, assisted by those who attend the centre regularly. Throughout the year we offer 7-day retreats that focus on the fundamentals of Buddhism, Buddhist scriptures and sutras and aspects and questions arising out of contemporary practice. Week-llong retreats are open to those who have formally taken the Buddhist Precepts and to those who have attended retreats at Shasta Abbey or at a temple of the Order of Buddhist Contemplatives.


Please check the calendar or contact the Guestmaster with any questions you have about future seven-day retreats.

Many of us have our individual daily practices but know that longer retreats can add a transformative dimension to practice with incalculable benefits for ourselves as well as our communities. The Nottingham Buddhist Centre is dedicated to the spread of the Buddha's message in a way that is relevant to us here and now, yet remains faithful to the essentials of the Buddhist Tradition.
For those with some experience of meditation we run Buddhism and meditation courses several times a year for those who want to learn something of the Buddha's message.
We have Nottingham's best-stocked Buddhist bookshop, which sells books on most Buddhist topics, cards, postcards and incense and some CDs. It is affiliated to the Triratna Buddhist Community, a Buddhist movement founded by Sangharakshita in the late 1960's and originally known in the west as the Friends of the Western Buddhist Order (FWBO).This name was changed recently to more truly reflect the international nature of the movement. Week-long retreats offer periods of seated meditation, working meditation, ceremonies and chanting, silent meals and time for quiet reflection and individual practice.
Master Zensho Roberson, who trains in a small temple in the Idaho panhandle and leads a meditation group in Sandpoint. Master Astor Douglas, will offer Teachings on our medi- tation practice which we have inherited from great teachers of the past.


Retreats are in the Classical, Theravadan or Secular Buddhist tradition but we're open to other meditation traditions.
We also have some resources for the visually impaired in the form of CD recordings of some books. The name Triratna also reminds us of our central ideals, meaning "Three Jewels" which refers to the Buddha, Dharma and Sangha (see About Buddhism page).
The focus of the retreat is to enrich our practice of meditation by learning about the teach- ings and examples of some great meditation masters and then meditating on the teachings as a way to learn and grow in our own practice of the Dharma. Beginners to advanced meditators as well as the merely curious are all welcome to the meet-up but practitioners are advised to consider whether their practice can sustain the rigors of the individual retreats. The Bodhi Tree Forest Monastery has done lots of bush regeneration on the property, planting more than 4000 rainforest species including koala food trees. Astor will offer Dharma talks, Dharma discussions, and private spiritual counsel- ing upon request.
