Albuquerque Insight Meditation Center

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. Since March 2020 we have been a “virtual” community with all of our meetings and events taking place online using the Zoom platform. Please join us!

Aspirations and Values

We are a community that aspires to end suffering through the realization of the Buddha’s Noble Eightfold Path. We are guided by the following principles and practices:

  • The Buddha’s gradual training of generosity, ethical conduct and cultivation of awareness.
  • The Brahma Viharas: compassion, loving kindness, appreciative joy and equanimity.
  • Freely offering the teachings to all who are seeking, without exception.
  • Communication that is true, appropriate and kind.
  • Compassionate action through service.
ABOUT US

New to AIMC or returning after an absence?

In March of 2020, the AIMC Board of Directors decided to halt all of our in-person activities and shift to using the Zoom online platform. We have continued our previous schedule, including weekly meetings on Thursday and Sunday evenings, and added new events such as a Wednesday night Sangha Tea and morning meetings on Mondays through Saturdays. (See the website calendar for times and Zoom links.) Also, we have cancelled the lease on our former Rosemont Avenue location and have begun the search for a new home for the sangha to move into when the pandemic situation allows it. Please join us online, as we have found that the Dharma can be learned and practiced there just as well as in a physical building!

ABOUT US

New to AIMC?

Here is some information we hope you will find helpful as a visitor or new member of our community:

  • Please leave your shoes in the entryway as you enter.
  • Help yourself to filtered water in the kitchen area; hot tea is available during longer meetings and retreats.
  • Please observe noble silence when you enter the meditation hall.  This silence provides an opportunity to cultivate mindfulness and awareness of our experience in a deeper way.
  • We have chairs or cushions for sitting.
  • Please make yourself comfortable, and let us know if we can assist you in any way.
