Welcome to Insight Western Mass
Insight WM offers a variety of Affinity Groups for community members with specific needs to get to know and support each other as Dharma Friends. These groups of people with similarities help create a welcoming space for those who might not feel welcome when entering a new community. It is our intention to welcome a diverse group of practitioners and hope you will find refuge here.
