Insight Meditation Group


Welcome to the Insight Meditation Group of Houston. With a commitment to group & individual practices, we are dedicated to gain a deeper understanding of the true nature of our mind and to be fully alive in the present moment.

We meet every Saturday at the American Bodhi Center. The Center, part of the Texas Buddhist Association, is a 515-acre property located in unincorporated Waller County, near Hempstead. It includes log houses, dormitories, and a large meditation hall and is full of natural features such as rolling hills, clear streams, and a lush pine forest. The center combines the graceful environment of Mother Nature with Buddhist esthetics and is the ideal place to unwind and get away from the hustle of our often busy lives. By immersing ourselves in the natural and calming atmosphere, we can easily achieve the goal of relaxing body and mind.

Surrounded by the beauty of nature, the Insight Meditation Group practices sitting and walking meditation, led by a resident monk. Everyone is welcome to join the group without prior registration.
