Description Cambridge Insight Meditation Center (CIMC) was established by Larry Rosenberg in 1985 as a non-profit, non-residential urban center for the practice of insight meditation. Facilities at the CIMC include a meditation hall, space for walking meditation, an interview room, library, and kitchen. The Center has a parking lot and is easily accessible by public transportation. There are three full-time teachers: Larry Rosenberg, Narayan Liebenson Grady, and Michael Liebenson Grady. The core of insight meditation is the practice of mindfulness, a quality of awareness which sees without judgment. Mindfulness is developed and strengthened through sitting and walking meditation. CIMC considers the challenges of daily life to be a part of meditation practice; such challenges offer an opportunity for practitioners to develop the art of mindful living. Activities and Schedule All are invited to join in any of the public sittings and Wednesday evening dharma talks. CIMC offers many opportunities for meditation instruction for beginners including classes, workshops and drop-in practice groups. A variety of non-residential retreats (mostly one-, two-, and three-day) are offered throughout the year. Note: The Insight Meditation Society in Barre, MA 01005-9701 provides a full schedule of residential Vipassana retreats throughout the year. Call (978) 355-4378 for more information.
