The “Associazione per la Meditazione di Consapevolezza” (Insight Meditation Association) A.Me.Co. was founded in December 1987 in Rome by Corrado Pensa, Neva Papachristou and six other Members, all Dharma practitioners. A.Me.Co is a religious buddhist organization of Theravāda tradition, born to testify, cultivate and disseminate, in accordance with the buddhist Scriptures, and with an interreligious […]
In 2017 A.Me.Co. turned 30. The Organisation has been, and keeps being a welcoming refuge in the heart of a big city, for whoever wants to practice meditation and study Dharma. A.Me.Co. is a concrete support for people who want to nurture healthy habits like wisdom, compassion and generosity.
A.Me.Co. testifies the inner journey taught by Buddha. The result of this journey concerns the whole community. Everyone who is raised with love, wisdom, ethics and generosity contributes to the whole human family. The Organisation is happy to be able to keep growing and organizing activities to those who want to nurture their mind-heart.
How much to give: no donation is too small not to be appreciated.
“How wonderful it is that nobody needs to wait a single moment before starting to improve the world” (Anne Frank)
Due to the current financial crisis, A.Me.Co. has been keeping the same membership prices for years, giving access to Buddha’s Dharma Teachings to many.
Please help us, so that in 2018 the Organisation can continue spreading wisdom, love and compassion, all much needed right now.
Support A.Me.Co. to give us the necessary confidence to keep going.
Support A.Me.Co. because we are a community, and your help is a gift for everyone else.
The range in which our kindness acts is often much bigger than what we imagine.
REFLECTING ON THE DHARMA PRACTICE by Corrado Pensa
In one of his famous speeches, Sedaka Sutta, Buddha explains the need of taking care of oneself and others. He doesn’t say that the only important thing is to take care of others – as present western moralism instead preaches. It’s actually fundamental to take care of both of oneself, and others. Taking care of oneself indicates maturity, and has nothing to do with perpetual worrying about ourselves. Let’s not forget that, once we get stronger with self-care, we become more useful and are capable of paying attention to others.
