True North Insight sees peace, well-being and freedom of heart and mind as innate in all people. Our purpose is to support the inner realization and the outer expression of this reality in all beings, excluding none. We undertake to fulfill this vision by teaching and supporting the practice of Insight Meditation (Vipassana) and the Buddhist principles that are designed to foster ethical behaviour, concentration, and wisdom.
Guiding Ethics and Principles:
True North Insight (TNI) is guided in all endeavours by the ethical guidelines of non-harming expressed in the five precepts, the spirit of loving friendship and compassion, the wisdom of insight, and the Truth of Liberation.
