A Meditation Center in the Theravada Buddhist Tradition


Albuquerque Insight Meditation Center (AIMC) is a community that aspires to realize the liberating potential of the dharma—the teachings of the Buddha. Our meditation gatherings, dharma talks and other activities are open to all. We always like to see new faces and old friends. Please join us. Our facility is totally wheelchair accessible.  We have a strong sound system for the Hearing Impaired.  Service dogs are welcome and our members are friendly and helpful to those with disabilities.  Let us know how we can assist you.


All events are held at Rosemont Center, 200 Rosemont Ave NE, unless otherwise noted.

As of June 1, all donation checks must be written to the name, Albuquerque Insight Meditation Center—or AIMC.  The center cannot accept checks or payments written to the old name, Albuquerque Vipassana Sangha (AVS) on or after June 1.
  Community Dharma Leader Kathryn Turnipseed will offer a daylong retreat on New Year’s Day, Monday January 1, from 9:30am – 4:pm. Join us for dharma talk, meditation, chanting, and inquiry. Vegetarian lunch provided. Information and registration here
  Urgent Notice: AIMC Guiding teacher, Erin Treat, will lead a practice discussion for experienced dharma practitioners on Wednesday 12/20 from 5:15-6:45 pm. This meeting will take place via video conferencing from your home computer (using free Zoom software). The group is limited to 12 participants. It is suggested that participants have several years of regular sitting practice and at least several weeks of residential retreat practice experience.

Enrollment preference will be given to yogis who joined the experienced dharma practitioners’ meeting that took place during Erin’s last visit to AIMC in November. The idea for this event arose as a result of the momentum of that meeting. If the Zoom format is beneficial we may consider using this format for other offerings in the future.

This event is offered on the basis of dana, a practice of mutual generosity that has been alive since the time of the Buddha.

To sign up, please email Miriam at Rolling enrollment until full.
