The Insight Meditation Community of Lewes is a group committed to using the practice of meditation to explore the dharma, the spiritual path delineated by Gotama Buddha 2500 years ago. Although we call ourselves an Insight, or Vipassana, Meditation community, our group includes persons of other Buddhist and non-Buddhist spiritual traditions who wish to use meditation to deepen their spiritual practice. We welcome both new and experienced meditators to join us as we seek to support each other in our journeys.
We meet on Monday afternoons for silent meditation, host a bi-weekly book discussion group in which we discuss books on meditation and the Buddhist path, and hold a monthly public talk/event the first Friday evening of most months. These events take place at St Peter’s Episcopal Church on 2nd and Mulberry Streets in Lewes, Delaware. We also sponsor both half and full day retreats with visiting teachers at a variety of locations including the Lewes Public Library and the Biden Center in Henlopen State Park.
