The Northampton Insight Meditation Community (NIMC) is currently embarking on an exciting process of exploring, brainstorming, and co-developing a mission, so that we can formulate a vision to guide Northampton Insight forward. Please share your voice, in person or on our community email list (subscribe here!)

Welcome!

We at the Northampton Insight Meditation Community (NIMC) celebrate inclusiveness. We are dedicated to being a welcoming community to all. We are firmly committed to diversity of race, class, age, ethnicity, cultural and religious background, sexual orientation, gender identity, physical and mental ability, and hope that all feel included and comfortable practicing here.
