Welcome to Sheffield Insight Meditation

We offer retreats led by teachers associated with Gaia House Retreat Centre in Devon, and regular groups for meditation practice.

Our events are open to all aged 18 and over and take place at various venues in Sheffield and the surrounding area.

Insight Meditation (or Vipassana: literally translated as ‘seeing clearly’) is the practice of developing and cultivating ways of seeing the nature of experience that lead to wisdom, compassion and freedom.

The practice begins with gently bringing attention to awareness of the body and sensations of breathing, and opens out to include more and more of our experience. Insight Meditation is part of a 2,500 year-old Buddhist tradition with deep and immediate relevance to life today, however you do not need to have any particular beliefs or think of yourself as a Buddhist to attend our groups and retreats.
