"I just wanted to say thank you SO much!

I first found you on Insight Timer after looking for meditation resources during a difficult time in my life. After trying many different meditations, I have found your voice and approach helps me the most.

I take a break and meditate every day. Your "breath based body scan" is SO very helpful. I just wished you could do one for longer. :) Even though I've been using it for years, it still amazes me what I can feel move when I focus and breath!

Thank you, again!"

Insight Timer

Vidyamala has three audio courses available on the Insight Timer app:

Methods for Living with Pain and Illness

(10 sessions of 15 minutes each)

10 Rules For Survival: Mindfulness & Compassion In Challenging Times

(10 sessions of 15 minutes each)

Mindfulness for Managing Long Covid

(7 sessions of 15 minutes each)


Vidyamala teamed up with Tricycle Buddhist Magazine to create a six-module video course called Freeing the Mind When the Body Hurts.

The course uses Vidyamala's six-step BE AWARE method and draws on core teachings of the Buddha about how to manage physical pain and illness.

It's a complete path of training and whole life transformation.

"The Buddhist teachings shared in the course were not new to me. I’ve also already done a lot to help manage my chronic pain. And yet the course was transformative. Vidyamala’s skillful application of these teachings to the experience of pain and illness was what I had been missing."

"Excellent course guided by an excellent teacher."

"I found this course extremely helpful and well presented, full of practical ideas that can be incorporated into daily life, as well as useful concepts, reflections and meditations. Vidyamala Burch is an inspiring teacher, full of good heart and authenticity, a wonderful role model."
