About Us

The Ottawa Insight Meditation Community (OIMC) was established in 2010 as a nonprofit, urban-based community for the practice of Insight meditation. OIMC is a True North Insight affiliated group.

Located in Ottawa, Ontario, OIMC provides opportunities to practice insight meditation and other contemplative practices amid the complexities of city living. The group is dedicated to creating a space that welcomes all people regardless of cultural and religious background, race, socio‐economic class, sexual orientation, gender identity, age, education, and physical ability. It is an environment where people can come together to learn, support and deepen practice. OIMC is guided in all endeavors by the ethics of non-harming, the spirit of loving friendship and compassion, the wisdom of insight, and the truth of liberation.
