The Karuna Meditation Society (KMS) is a pluralistic Buddhist group that draws inspiration from the Theravada teachings of Insight (Vipassana) and Lovingkindness (Metta) meditation, the Zen teachings of Thich Nhat Hanh and Shunryu Suzuki Roshi, as well as the wisdom found in related spiritual, philosophical and scientific traditions of inquiry. KMS was founded in Vancouver, B.C. in 1984.
