Welcome to the website of the Blue Mountains Insight Meditation Centre. We provide facilities for the teaching and practice of satipatthana vipassana or insight meditation in the tradition of the late Venerable Mahasi Sayadaw 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.

We are located in a tranquil setting in the small town of Medlow Bath in the Blue Mountains, two hours by train from Sydney. Please visit the following pages for more information about our teachers, courses and facilities.
