Welcome to the Blue Mountains Insight Meditation Centre website. We provide facilities for the teaching and practice of satipaṭṭhāna vipassanā or insight meditation in the tradition of the late Venerable Mahāsi Sayādaw of Burma.
The Centre seeks its inspiration in the Buddhist Theravadan tradition and aims to develop an Australian Buddhism. Courses are taught by visiting teachers, including monks and nuns from Burma and other countries.
The Centre is located in a tranquil setting in the small town of Medlow Bath in the City of Blue Mountains, two hours by train from Sydney and adjoining the vast World Heritage Area. The town has an altitude of over 1000 metres and enjoys a bracing mountain climate year round.
