About us:

New Haven Insight is a meditation community dedicated to the practice of mindful awareness and compassion, with the goal of decreasing (and ending) stress and suffering for all beings.

We welcome anyone who wishes to practice meditation, regardless of previous experience or spiritual background. Beginners welcome! Our primary meditation practice, based on the teachings of the historical Buddha, are insight meditation (Vipassana) and loving kindness meditation (Metta).

We meet for meditation on Monday and Thursday evenings in Dwight Chapel on Yale’s  old campus, and on Saturday and Sunday at 1253 Whitney in Hamden.

Our group includes students, faculty and the broader New Haven Community.  You do not need to be from Yale to join us. We are diverse in age, race, and gender.
