Welcome and thank you for visiting!
Lakeland Insight Meditation Group (LIMG) is a Sangha, a community of people who come together to practice insight meditation and to learn about Buddhism in the Theravada tradition. This gathering of community is an important support for individual meditation practice and helps us see our link to one another and the world around us. Through Sangha, we hope to bring both meditation practice and Buddhist teachings into every day life.
You do not have to be Buddhist to participate with our group. People from a variety of religious traditions and those who are secular are all part of our community. What we share is a commitment to meditation as a path to cultivating kindness, compassion, and spiritual growth. Our programs and activities are open to everyone, regardless of race, ethnicity, gender, age, sexual orientation, or gender identity.
The Benefits of Mindfulness
Mindfulness is the practice of being deliberately aware from moment to moment of one’s conscious experience. It is the state of tuning in to the stream of consciousness as it flows and staying in the present moment with this awareness. Mindfulness meditation teaches you to slow down racing thoughts, let go of negativity, and calm both your mind and body.

Try a Guided Meditation
Mindfulness is a special type of awareness; training the mind to see experience clearly and intimately in the present moment. This style of meditation practice is training the mind to discern what is suffering. We then let go of suffering and come back to the freedom of mindfulness. This is typically the first style of meditation that a practitioner learns and develops.
