Welcome

Buffalo Mindfulness is on break until Spring of 2015. Events already planned for 2015 include a 4 week intro to mindfulness course and a weekend teaching event with Randy Baker and Jim Bedard of Satipañña Insight Meditation Toronto, http://satipanna.comIn the meantime, if anyone is new to the mindfulness/vipassana practice and would like some help starting a home based mindfulness practice you can email info@buffalodharma.org and a simple Mindfulness Toolkit will be shared electronically.

Buffalo Mindfulness Community is a non-profit group based in the Buffalo, NY area. We offer non-sectarian meditation practices based on the early teachings of the historical Buddha in a warm and friendly atmosphere embracing a "big boat" approach to spiritual training. While the group emphasizes the Buddha’s instructions on Mindfulness or Sati (also called Vipassana or Insight Meditation), practitioners trained in other traditions and people new to meditation have found our non-sectarian approach welcoming. Prior meditation experience is not required and people of all religious and secular backgrounds are welcome. You can find out more about the group’s vision and mission on the About page of this website, http://buffalodharma.org/about.

Buffalo Mindfulness Community freely offers an electronic Mindfulness Toolkit and periodically sponsors introductory classes on mindfulness, lectures and one or half day retreats. The next intro course will take place in May of 2015 and registration will soon be available on the website. Questions about the four week class can be directed to info@buffalodharma.org or by calling 716.626.9016 ext. 205. Buffalo Mindfulness will have multiple half day mindfulness retreats starting in May of 2015 and will also sponsor periodic weekend teaching events with vipassana teachers. In the meantime, if anyone is new to the mindfulness/vipassana practice and would like some help starting a home based mindfulness practice you can email info@buffalodharma.org and a simple Mindfulness Toolkit will be shared electronically.


The Buffalo Mindfulness Community has no organized religious affiliation but is rooted in the non-sectarian and universal teachings of the historical Buddha. Visit the following link to explore the question about whether Buddhism is a religion: http://www.buddhanet.net/nutshell03.htm
