Insight Meditation South Bay - a center for mindfulness, peace and awakening

Insight Meditation South Bay (IMSB) offers mindfulness-based meditation practices to awaken heart and mind, and to support the development of ethical living, meditation, and wisdom. We teach skills for developing mindfulness, loving-kindness and compassion, concentration, practical daily life wisdom, and the deep meditative absorptions called jhanas.

IMSB and our teachers are dedicated to the Buddhist practice of Dana and generosity. Our activities rely upon the generosity of our community in donations, gift or effort.

The heart of Insight Meditation, also known as Vipassana, is the clarity of awakening. We use mindfulness-based meditative approaches for spiritual awakening and require no adherence to religious dogma. Freedom is the essence of this meditation training. Attachment is the problem that meditation is designed to solve. Wisdom, peace and calm awareness pervade the silence of formal meditation and also the business of active daily life. We train our minds through meditation and contemplation and apply that clarity to our complex daily interactions.

IMSB's ongoing programs include a weekly meditation group Tuesday evenings in Mountain View and Thursday evenings in Saratoga, a beginner's orientation the first Tuesday of each month at 6:30, a Day-Long Retreat each month, and online courses. We offer a 6-month Walking the Path program, Sutta Study Courses on the Discourses of the Buddha, and residential and non-residential meditation retreats. Please visit imsb.org for more information about our ongoing programs and the many special events that IMSB offers.

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
