Rebel Saints Meditation Society was founded to make the teachings of the Buddha available to all who are interested.
We are American Buddhists rooted in the Theravada tradition and inspired by the wisdom and compassion teachings found in all Buddhist traditions. We follow the teachings of the Against the Stream Meditation Society of Los Angeles.
We practice insight meditation, also known as mindfulness or Vipassana, the central meditation teaching of the Buddha. At its most basic, insight meditation focuses attention on the breath and cultivates present time awareness. Combined with the heart practices of lovingkindness, compassion and forgiveness, insight meditation develops our natural wisdom and the ability to see life as it really is.
