Sangha Description: 

PIMC was created to provide community support for Insight practitioners in the Philippines. Guiding teacher Carol Cano has practiced for 26 years and completed the Community Dharma Leader program in 2012.

We have a weekly meditation group, monthly daylongs, and weekend retreats. For now, our sangha's home is Templa Wellness, a healing oasis in the heart of the business district of Makati City in metro Manila. We share 30% of our dana toward the cost of Templa’s operation.

In addition, we have started to bring people to Thailand to experience a 10-day Vipassana retreat with monastic teachers. We have started to explore various regions in Thailand and develop relationships with certain wats. We are interested to broaden and expand our connections, bridging the Philippine Insight sangha with the larger Insight sangha of the West and with that of our neighboring Asian countries.
