Weekly Meeting of the 

Bozeman Insight Community

Thursdays, 7:00 – 8:30 pm

Thursday night meetings have both in-person and remote attendance options
You can use this link to attend BIC meetings remotely. If you are asked for a passcode, please use 108108.


Bozeman Insight Community (BIC) is a welcoming community that offers the Buddha’s priceless teachings on wisdom and compassion to all those who seek them. Centered on a commitment to personal practice  we support the development and expression of our inherent wisdom  and compassion for the benefit of all beings.

The program usually begins with a short teaching to introduce the practice and provide some instruction. Then there is a lightly-guided 30-minute meditation, followed by tea, Q&A, and discussion. We open and close the evening with short chants, which are provided and completely optional.

All are warmly welcome to drop in and join us. No prior experience necessary. If you’d like to talk to one of the leaders prior to attending for the first time, please email us and we’ll connect. We look forward to meeting you and welcoming you to our sangha.

When in person, service dogs, lap babies and school-age children are welcome. There are places in the room and nearby where kids can hang out or do homework. Parents can relax about any disturbance this may cause – our community is not fussy about meditation rooms being super silent (ambient noise is a chance to practice with the conditions and cultivate equanimity). We’d rather have you with us than strive for “perfect” conditions (which don’t exist).

10:30  – 11:30 AM

Led by Suzanne Colón

This program shares the meditation practices that expand our capacity to meet life with an open, stable heart-mind. Guided meditations will vary week to week, providing an opportunity to try new practices and ways of working with life’s challenges.

10:25 – Zoom Room Opens
10:30 – 10:55 – Guided Meditation
Collective Sharing of Delights or Difficulties
Short Reading: Guidance in the Buddhist Practices of the Heart
Discussion until 11:30

Following the guided meditation, we’ll give each other the opportunity to connect, to be supported in times of difficulty, and be witnessed in times of joy. The collective “Sharing of Delights or Difficulties” is formal practice of briefly naming a sorrow or difficulty, a joy or delight, and having the group witness and resonate with each other’s experience.

No prior meditation experience is needed to attend this program. Please make every effort to arrive by 10:30.

This program is offered freely, which means this is a gift to the community, and you are encouraged to pay the gift forward to help cover costs to the degree that you can. This is a program of the Bozeman Insight Community (BIC), offered to the entire Dharma Center community and general public.

 All people

You can use this link to attend BIC meetings remotely. If you are asked for a passcode, please use 108108.


Bozeman Insight Community (BIC) is a welcoming community that offers the Buddha’s priceless teachings on wisdom and compassion to all those who seek them. Centered on a commitment to personal practice  we support the development and expression of our inherent wisdom  and compassion for the benefit of all beings.

The program usually begins with a short teaching to introduce the practice and provide some instruction. Then there is a lightly-guided 30-minute meditation, followed by tea, Q&A, and discussion. We open and close the evening with short chants, which are provided and completely optional.

All are warmly welcome to drop in and join us. No prior experience necessary. If you’d like to talk to one of the leaders prior to attending for the first time, please email us and we’ll connect. We look forward to meeting you and welcoming you to our sangha.

When in person, service dogs, lap babies and school-age children are welcome. There are places in the room and nearby where kids can hang out or do homework. Parents can relax about any disturbance this may cause – our community is not fussy about meditation rooms being super silent (ambient noise is a chance to practice with the conditions and cultivate equanimity). We’d rather have you with us than strive for “perfect” conditions (which don’t exist).
