Committed Students Programs
An opportunity to experience the support of a small group of local
(Sierra Foothills) Insight Meditation committed meditation practitioners, to systematically study the teachings of the Buddha, and to develop a relationship with an Insight Meditation Teacher.
This course is taught by Mountain Stream Teacher, Heather Sundberg, and has been offered since 2013 at our beautiful Nevada City Insight Center.
The current Committed Students Program is full and no new applications are being taken at this time. Thank you for your interest! Please check back.
