Cambridge Insight Meditation Center
Stone Basin

Practice should not be separated from living and living at all times should be one's practice.

–Master Sheng Yen

Standing Buddha

See all of this world as a star at dawn, a bubble in the stream, a flash of lightning in the summer cloud, a flickering lamp, a phantom and a dream.

–The Buddha

Membership Donation
The suggested annual pledge is $300. However, we recognize that $300 is not appropriate for everyone: for some it is too high, and for others too low. Therefore, we have included other options: one is to pledge $420 annually and another is to pledge a different amount that you feel is most appropriate for your income.

We provide financial aid in the form of work exchanges and scholarships to all who request it. If you have questions or concerns about payment, or if you would like financial aid, please contact the office.
