At Flagstaff Insight Meditation Community (FIMC), we are dedicated to fostering a welcoming refuge for all people to explore meditation, mindful living, and the teachings of the Buddha. We are committed to cultivating an appreciation of the value of diversity and to acknowledging the need to recognize and dissolve barriers that separate us from each other. We open our doors and hearts to all social identities including, but not limited to, all races, classes, sexual orientations, gender identities, ages, abilities, cultures, and ethnicities.
FIMC provides both in-person and virtual opportunities for group practice and exploration. The Monday evening meditation and dharma talk is offered in a hybrid format: if you find yourself in Flagstaff you are welcome to join us at the Beacon Unitarian Universalist Congregation, located downtown at 510 N Leroux St; if you can’t or prefer not to attend in person you can also join by Zoom. Most other FIMC events are offered virtually, unless noted otherwise.
