Notes and Events:

 The Dragon Mountain Zen Community Center of Rhode Island (ZCC) offers a resource to all in helping to enhance community and individual wellness. Our programs are secular (for all faiths)  in recognition that it is what we share in common that will be what will create a whole, purposeful and supportive community for all.

We offer outdoor classes that combine Shaolin Qi Gong/Kung Fu with GO/Weiqi and Life Drawing Studies, Meditation, Private Instruction and train volunteers for various local programs including hospice, veterans care, research initiatives and humane services. Every year we run the "Winter of Plenty" a food relief program that provides economic and wellness support to those in need.

Chan Devotional, every 3rd Sunday at 7pm.

Insight Meditation Community of Providence

Address: 354 Broadway, 2nd floor   Providence RI 02905
Tradition: Theravada
Affiliation: Insight Meditation Society
Phone: (401) 941-3701
Find on:
Main Contact: Benjamin Hall  Email  (Phone: (401) 941-3701)
Notes and Events:

At this time, our Community is a practice group with no affiliated teachers; we draw teachings in through readings and audio recordings, and encourage members to attend retreats and dharma talks at the Insight Meditation Society in Barre, Massachusetts, the Cambridge Insight Meditation Center in Cambridge, Massachusetts, and various other places where teachings are being offered by recognized teachers of the dharma.

At our weekly Tuesday evening sitting meditation practice, both experienced meditators and persons new to meditation are warmly welcome.  We practice sitting meditation for 30 minutes. Depending on the week, we either read aloud for 20 - 25 minutes, or (on the second and fourth weeks), we listen to a recording of a dharma talk (roughly one hour long).   The readings and the recorded dharma talks are by various dharma teachers from the Insight and Theravada traditions, such as Joseph Goldstein, Larry Rosenberg, Ajahn Sumedho, and Sharon Salzberg.  We leave a few minutes after the reading/talk for brief discussion. 

For anyone not familiar with Insight Meditation (Vipassana meditation), optional brief instruction is provided at 7:10 PM before the Tuesday evening sitting. 

On the third Tuesday of each month, an addition 30 minute sitting period follows the dharma reading; participants are welcome to stay for this or leave quietly before it begins.

Please make an effort to arrive on time.  If you do arrive late, please enter quietly, find a seat (a cushion or chair), and join us in practice.

For those who have some meditation experience, possibly including some experience with intensive silent retreats, we also have First Sunday Extended Practice, a monthly half- day of silent sitting and walking meditation.  Please see the event pages for more information.

We look forward, in the future, to welcoming experienced teachers of the dharma to come and offer dharma talks.
