Our Mission, Vision, and Values



The Atlanta Insight Meditation Community is a Buddhist Sangha practicing in the Insight tradition.

Our aspiration is to create a welcoming and inclusive spiritual community offering the transformative teachings of a living Dhamma to guide daily life and practice.

Our vision is to support awakening and freedom for all beings through practices of lovingkindness, compassion, generosity, and deep seeing that cultivate wisdom, ethical living, and mindfulness.


Our community is informed by these values:

We value the study and practice of the lasting teachings of the Buddhadharma.

We value and celebrate diversity, inclusivity, and respect for all beings and recognize the inherent dignity of all.

We vow to work against all forms of oppression.

We are committed to engagement, justice, equity, and celebration of interdependence.

We vow to create a space of “Sangha as practice” by supporting mutual respect and mindful dialogue.
