Albuquerque Insight Meditation Center (AIMC) is a community that aspires to realize the liberating potential of the dharma—the teachings of the Buddha.
Our meditation gatherings, dharma talks and other activities are open to all. We always like to see new faces and old friends. Please join us.


All events are held at Rosemont Center, 200 Rosemont Ave NE, unless otherwise noted.

  We are changing our name to
Albuquerque Insight Meditation Center,
and we are welcoming Erin Treat as our guiding teacher.
See the board of directors’ letter for more information.
Please continue to write your checks to
Albuquerque Vipassana Sangha or AVS.

  We encourage members to set up small groups for study
and practice. If you are interested in establishing a group
and finding people to join, click here.
  We have an Ethics and Reconciliation Council to encourage
mutual respect and reconciliation within our community.

  If you leave your car on Rosemont, please park at least a
couple of car lengths away from Broadway so the semi-trailer
trucks have enough room to maneuver onto the street.
