About

The Association of Mindfulness Meditation and Secular Buddhism (AMMSB) is a nonprofit organization that promotes Secular Buddhism and secular meditation by advocating, introducing, and teaching the benefits of these practices to the diverse secular communities across the United States and around the world. Our practice of Buddhism is secular because we make no supernatural claims and advocate only those practices that are consistent with or corroborated by reason and the best science available. We believe that, when properly understood, secular Buddhism and meditation lead to responsible ethical practices based on compassion, charity and the pursuit of meaning and knowledge. Our members are individuals and organizations who are Buddhists, atheists, nontheists, humanists, freethinkers, agnostics, and skeptics, as well as all others who wish to practice meditation, Buddhism and spirituality without reference to supernatural forces.
