Sangha Description: 

IMC is a community-based urban meditation center for the practice of Insight meditation. We are a non-residential center in Redwood City, California, dedicated to the study and practice of Buddhist teachings. We offer a broad range of practice and community activities, including a weekly schedule of meditation sessions, Dharma talks, classes, group discussions, yoga practice and a variety of meditation and study retreats.

IMC began in 1986 as a gathering of individuals who meet in order to learn, support and deepen their mindfulness practice. It is an informal group, and those interested in mindfulness meditation and Buddhist Insight practice are heartily welcome to participate whenever they wish.

IMC does not require payment for any of our teachings or meetings. The support of our teachers and all our center expenses is done through the voluntary donations of our community.
