About Us & Our Mission

The Center for Mindfulness & Insight Meditation’s mission is to help people develop the self-awareness and inner peace necessary to live life in a skillful way. The Society does this by providing a serene, contemplative space for the practice of insight meditation, under the gentle and experienced guidance of resident Buddhist monks, and in the context of a supportive community of fellow practitioners. The Society warmly welcomes novice and experienced practitioners of all faiths.

At the Meditation Society, our focus is experiential and does not require adherence to any kind of religious doctrine. We practice a form of insight meditation known as Mahasati meditation. Some of us have been practicing for many years and continue to reap the benefits of practice; others are just beginning. We are very fortunate to have an extremely knowledgeable ordained meditation master from Thailand in residence. We welcome all to join us.

The Redding Meditation Society is a 501(c)(3) charitable organization and your donations are fully tax deductible as allowed by law.  The use and operation of the Redding Meditation Center is made possible entirely by donations from our members.
