About the Seattle Insight Meditation Center (Beginning in June, 2019)
Welcome to our new home, in the University District! UFM is located at 4001 9th Ave NE in Seattle, just off I-5 and adjacent to the Burke-Gilman Trail. The Meeting House is a spacious building with two large gathering rooms, the Worship Hall and Social Hall (with an adjacent large kitchen). The Worship Hall will be a welcoming new home for our regular weekly sits and classes. The Social Hall can host our day-longs and other events that will benefit from having access to the kitchen space. The whole building wraps around a calm landscaped interior courtyard and all rooms have large windows that look out onto beautiful landscaping.
Seattle Insight Meditation (SIMS) meets at a variety of locations throughout the Puget Sound Area. Our office and many of our events, including our weekly Monday night dharma talk and sit are held at University Friends Meeting House from 7:00 – 9:00 pm. Directions to this location are noted below. For other events, including our weekly Sunday morning dharma talk and sit, Under 40 Sit, evening talks and non-residential retreats, please see the locations shown on our calendar links or Venue Map.
