~ May all beings be free from suffering ~

Insight Meditation of Cleveland provides a gathering place for those who wish to practice Insight (or vipassana) meditation. Insight meditation is a simple, direct practice, a moment-to-moment investigation of the mind/body process through calm and focused awareness.


Learning to observe experience from a place of stillness enables one to relate to life with less fear and clinging. Seeing life as a constantly changing process, one begins to accept beauty and

 pain, fear and joy in all aspects of life with increasing equanimity and balance. As insight deepens, wisdom and compassion arise.


Insight meditation is a way of seeing clearly the totality of one's being and experience. Our growth in clarity brings penetrating insight into the nature of who we are and increased peace in our daily lives.
