Dear IMSB community,

As we work together to meet the COVID-19 challenge with mindfulness and wisdom, IMSB remains committed to the health and well-being of all. We have modified our programming; some events have been cancelled or converted our into online programs. Since the cornoavirus presents us with a rapidly evolving situation, please check our website for updates prior to attending any IMSB events. Any cancellations will be posted on our EVENTS CALENDAR.

Dhamma Talks Available To Support Your Daily Practice:
If you are “sheltering in place” at home, this could be an opportunity to strengthen your daily meditation practice and listen from our library of dhamma talks. https://imsb.dharmaseed.org/talks/
