Study: Meditation may boost brain activity by CNN, Wednesday, November 16, 2005
Well, these people in particular practice something called insight meditation, which is a form of meditation where you just watch your breath. As you inhale and exhale, you just watch the sensations associated with it. They practice, on average, about 40 minutes a day. We have people with as little as one year of experience and as many as 30 years of experience. [...]

An interview with Paula Green : A Beautiful Paradox by Insight Magazine Archives, Volume 18: Spring 2002
Tell us the story of the Peace Pagoda. It is a wonderful story. When the monks were first given the land there was a town hearing in Leverett, which is a little New England town outside of Amherst, to get permission to build a Peace Pagoda there. The town was divided. On one side of the room were a number of progressive people like myself, mainly involved in Buddhism, and on the other side were old Yankees who had lived in New England for a long time. These little guys in orange robes and Japanese accents, bowing a lot, seemed very strange to the old timers, and they did not want to approve the building of the Peace Pagoda. It was a very agitated and strident town meeting.

FINDING OUR PLACE (an interview with Myoshin Kelley ) by published in the Fall 2000 issue of Insight
For anyone sincerely willing to look into the nature of suffering, the dharma can be profoundly transformative. And there are not lots of people who have been practicing very diligently at IMS and elsewhere for many years. Out of their dedication these yogis come to retreat after retreat. I think a time will come when the fruits of all the practice done by these people -- the wisdom and compassion -- will be evident. It's already starting to happen. There are many yogis out in society who are bringing the insight and metta they have developed to their work and family environments. I can't help but think Buddhism will become much more embodied in this country.
