IMSB’s Thursday program in San Jose – Saratoga is organized into a series of courses on mindfulness, meditation, and Buddhist teachings and practices. With small group classes on a wide array of topics we can offer newcomers an ideal opportunity to learn meditation, and also enable seasoned meditators to refine their meditative skills and delve deeply into focused dhamma themes.

Registration is required for most of the classes, but periodically drop-in Deepening Practice and Community sessions will be integrated into the program in order to enhance experiential learning, stimulate reflective wisdom, and encourage good friendships as we practice together between scheduled series courses.

The Thursday Dhamma Classes in 2017 will be led by Shaila Catherine, Sharon Allen, Kimberly Allen, and Robert Cusick, along with a number of  guest teachers.
