We help people free their hearts and minds from stress and experience the freedom of the Buddha’s awakening through the practice of mindfulness and Buddhist insight meditation.
We practice primarily Mahasati Insight meditation, a type of Vipassana meditation that originated in Southeast Asia
Based on the teaching of the twentieth-century Thai meditation master, Luangpor Teean Jittasubho, Mahasati meditation uses attention to the movement of the body rather than the breath as an anchor to the present moment.
About the Center
We provide a place for classes and weekly practice where people can come together to learn and support their meditation practices under the guidance of experienced teachers.
We have in-person meditation practice sessions every Wednesday evening and Saturday morning in Wenham. Our Wednesday practice is also available via Zoom.
We offer both off-site residential retreats, and bi-monthly, on-site one-day retreats. Our retreats are usually led by Achan Da and/or by psychologist and Founder, Michael Bresnan, Ph.D.
Our mindfulness workshops here at the Center follow the Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction (MBSR) curriculum developed by Jon Kabat-Zinn.
