What we're about

Insight Meditation South Bay (www.imsb.org) offers meditation instruction, guidance, and support for contemplative practices that develop clarity, joy, and inner peace in the midst of everyday living. Whether you’re just curious about meditation, an experienced practitioner, or anywhere in between, we welcome you!

This Meetup site lists only a subset of the array of programs offered by IMSB. Our primary Meetup page is the Mountain View Insight Meditation South Bay page (https://www.meetup.com/Insight-Meditation-Center-South-Bay), where you can find more information on a variety of upcoming programs, including weekly sitting groups on Tuesday evenings in Mountain View plus monthly day-long retreats, online courses, and much more. For a complete schedule of events, retreats, classes, and programs, and a library of teachings available to download, please visit www.imsb.org.

Beginning in Mid-January 2017, the Thursday evening events at IMSB - San Jose/Saratoga will be a series of discrete classes (registration required). In between class series we will have a drop-in meditation meeting.

Our practices are firmly grounded in the three pillars of Buddhist training—virtue, mental clarity, and wisdom. We show you how to apply them to your life, right here and right now. While the context of our programming is the Buddha’s teachings, the practices we teach are universal: whatever your faith or belief system, you are welcome at our events as we cultivate mindfulness, happiness, and compassion.
