Welcome to the Blue Mountains Insight Meditation Centre website. We provide facilities for the teaching and practice of satipaṭṭhāna vipassanā or insight meditation in the tradition of the late Venerable Mahāsi Sayādaw of Burma.

Blue Mountains Insight Meditation Centre seeks its inspiration in the Buddhist Theravadan tradition and aims to develop an Australian Buddhism. Courses are taught by visiting teachers, including monks and nuns from Burma and other countries.

Blue Mountains Insight Meditation Centre is located in a tranquil setting in the small town of Medlow Bath in the City of Blue Mountains, two hours by train from Sydney and adjoining the vast World Heritage Area. The town has an altitude of over 1000 metres and enjoys a bracing mountain climate year round.

Medlow Bath Sitting Group

There is a weekly group meditation at BMIMC in Medlow Bath that meets on Wednesday evenings on nights that retreats are not scheduled. Several local supporters who are experienced meditators share responsibility for leading the group.

The sessions are from 7pm to 8pm and the format is sitting meditation with occasionally a short reading at the end of the sit. There are paths outside for walking meditation if people wish to walk instead of,or as well as,sitting.

If you are unfamiliar with this type of meditation practice, please contact BMIMC and some guidance before the session can be arranged. Visitors are welcome to stay for a cuppa and chat after the sitting if they wish.

The Blue Mountains Insight Meditation Centre is owned and managed by a non-profit association called the Buddha Sasana Association of Australia Incorporated (ABN 11 005 353 218).

The Buddha Sasana Association of Australia was founded in 1981 and incorporated as an association in 1986.

Around 1992, the association decided to establish its Centre at 25 Rutland Road, Medlow Bath with the aim of providing organised instruction on the practice and theory of Buddhist meditation on a regular and continuing basis. Since then, teaching at the Blue Mountains Insight Meditation Centre has been provided by qualified Buddhist monks, nuns and lay people to small groups of up to 20 students. All students who attend a course at the Centre are monitored by one or more teachers who will offer appropriate guidance and support to assist students in their understanding of the meditation practice and related Buddhist Meditation teachings.

The association is managed by a committee of up to 8 members who meet at least 4 times a year to oversee the Blue Mountains Insight Meditation Centreoperations and development. The day to day work of Blue Mountains Insight Meditation Centre is carried out by a part time co-ordinator, resident care taker and retreat co-ordinator with support from numerous volunteers.

Hybrid retreats, that is, retreats with some yogis at BMIMC and others connecting from home, are successful from the yogis’ perspective but are very challenging to manage for both teachers and staff. Interest in online retreats has waned as people are becoming tired of zoom and so much interaction by screen. There is a yearning in the community to be back at BMIMC, either sitting retreat or volunteering. BMIMC is ultimately a place for practice. Blue Mountains Insight Meditation Centre deepest gratitude to Margie for giving up so much of her time to keep the buddhist meditation Centre running over the past few months while we filled these positions.
