Membership is an expression of mutual support whereby we are all given the chance to support and nurture a community that supports and nurtures each of us.

Members nurture our welcoming and peaceful refuge in the heart of the city.
NYI is an almost entirely volunteer-run organization. To help deliver these programs, we have always relied heavily on a small but committed group of people. In return, theses dedicated individuals have the satisfaction of know NYI couldn’t exist without them. Offering service to New York Insight provides an invaluable way of strengthening your practice.
NYI is a not-for-profit 501(c)3 organization. All proceeds from your donation go towards upholding our mission to provide these teachings to all those who seek them. Donations help support our modest operating costs, small staff and regular program offerings. We are committed to making our programs available to all and do not turn anyone away for lack of funds.
New York Insight is an urban center for the practice of mindful awareness, called Insight or Vipassana meditation. NYI programs include talks, weekly sittings and courses as well as daylong and weekend retreats and workshops for the integration of meditation teachings into daily life. NYI strives to be a center that reflects the vivid diversity of the city in which we live. Our center is a place where everyone of different ages, nationalities, cultures, languages, ethnicities, sexual orientation, and spiritual backgrounds is welcome to begin or deepen meditation practice based on the teachings of the Buddha.
