What we're about

Only ONLINE MEETUPS at this time. They will be on Zoom. The "join link" is included in the meetup details.

The goal of Indianapolis Buddhist Meditation Retreats (IBMR) is to provide teachings and support for Buddhist practice. Meetups are for anyone sincerely interested in Buddhist practice.

This is a meetup for anyone sincerely interested in Buddhist practice. Meetups will run on a two-month cycle.

STARTING next month, December, someone who RSVPs and does not show up won't be allowed to join the meetup the rest of the two-month series. Someone who shows up on time is welcome the first time but, if he or she does not come at the next meetup, that person will have to wait until the next series before he or she will be admitted again.

This exclusion can be lifted by the host if the absent member requests it by giving a medical hardship as reason for not attending.

To give fair warning, a member may not show up for the next meetup once and be automatically granted access. Just one other time.

Spiritual practice is about transforming our priorities, that we do what we consider important to do. If you consider it an optional activity, maybe you are not ready to begin serious practice. When will you be?
