Roaring Fork Insight offers meditation instruction in the Buddhist practice of Vipassana (insight) and secular mindfulness. We offer weekly classes, staff trainings, events and daylong retreats for individuals and groups.

Listen to Lisa Goddard’s KDNK interview about the benefits of silent meditation.

I am proud that Aspen Valley Hospital engaged Lisa to help us promote well-being in our staff through teaching us the practice of mindfulness. Research shows that individuals that practice mindful awareness have an increased quality of life, reduced stress and inflammation, improved sleep, attention and focus, and are genuinely happier.... Lisa’s years of experience and calm, caring persona shine through in her sessions. I loved my group sessions with Lisa and found great value in them in both my personal and work life! I would rate Lisa as EXTRAORDINARY and highly recommend her to any individual or workplace!
