Buffalo Mindfulness Community is a non-profit group based in the Buffalo, NY area. We offer non-sectarian meditation practices based on the early teachings of the historical Buddha in a warm and friendly atmosphere embracing a "big boat" approach to spiritual training. While the group emphasizes the Buddha’s instructions on Mindfulness or Sati (also called Vipassana or Insight Meditation), practitioners trained in other traditions and people new to meditation have found our non-sectarian approach welcoming. Prior meditation experience is not required and people of all religious and secular backgrounds are welcome. You can find out more about the group’s vision and mission on the About page of this website, http://buffalodharma.org/about.
In the spirit of One Dharma, the Events tab and the Upcoming Events postings on the right side of this and nearly every page on the site list by date other meditation groups and special Dharma related events in the Buffalo area. However, besides the Buffalo Mindfulness Community group that meets at Unity, all other groups and the events they sponsor reflect the vision and mission of that specific group and may differ from Buffalo Mindfulness Community. For details about a group other than the Buffalo Mindfulness Community group at Unity, please attend that group and direct any questions to the facilitator.
Buffalo Mindfulness Community periodically sponsors introductory classes on mindfulness, lectures and one day retreat.
