Welcome to the Centro de Meditacion(CMV), in beautiful Vilcabamba Ecuador!
Vilcabamba Meditation Center, (CMV) is a bi-lingual Buddhist meditation center offering instruction in Vipassana (Insight) meditation, also known as the mindfulness practice. The center is nonsectarian and visiting teachers offer practices from Buddhist and other mystical and indigenous traditions. Traditional Sweat Lodge Ceremonies are also held at CMV.
The center is nestled between the Sacred Ahuarango and Mandango mountains in the tranquil Andean pueblo known as Vilcabamba (The Valley of Longevity and Sacred Valley) near Loja, Ecuador. We are on the edge of town, within walking distance from the river and Rumi Wilco Nature Preserve. The Center grows organic vegetables, fruits and berries and has a medicinal plant garden from which we make tea. There are modern kitchen and laundry facilities available and rooms for rent by the week or month.
