Insight Retreat Center

Insight Retreat Center (IRC) is dedicated to offering retreats in a supportive setting, for developing the full potential of meditation practice and Buddhist teachings under the guidance of experienced teachers.

IRC is entirely supported by a wide community of practitioners, volunteers and donors whose generosity is the foundation for the center. With no paid staff, the running of our retreats expresses the integration of the practice, service and goodwill of our volunteers.

Retreats at IRC are offered freely, as gifts to those who attend.  This means there is no cost for retreats.  Donations by those who attend our retreats make it possible to pass this gift forward to others who come to IRC.
