Welcome to BC Insight Meditation Society

The British Columbia Insight Meditation Society (BCIMS) is a non-profit organization based in what is now known as Vancouver, BC.  We connect and support Buddhist meditation communities in BC that practice in the Theravada tradition.

It is with heartfelt gratitude that we acknowledge the beautiful, traditional, and unceded lands of the Skwxwú7mesh (Squamish), xʷməθkwəy̓əm (Musqueam), and Səl̓ílwətaʔ/Selilwitulh (Tsleil-Waututh) peoples, who live on and have stewarded this land for thousands of years.

We invite you to join us in exploring the Buddha's teaching on
Insight, Generosity and Kindness
