TIMS is a group of women and men who gather together each week to practice mindfulness meditation (Vipassana) as a community. While we focus on the Theravadan tradition of Buddhism, all practitioners are welcomed regardless of spiritual and religious affiliations.

Our format is fairly simple: a meditation sitting followed by a Dharma talk. The sitting period is 30 minutes long and Dharma talks can range from 30-45 minutes. If some of the participants are less experienced with meditation, we will use the sitting period for a guided meditation.

We have no local teacher and value the simplicity this approach offers. Membership is the highest rank any of us achieve at TIMS. All talks are given by Gil Fronsdal or Andrea Fella of the Insight Meditation Center in Redwood City, California.

In the spirit of generosity that continues a 2500-year-old Buddhist tradition of providing teachings freely to all who are interested, there is no fee associated with TIMS. Currently, our only expense is for room rental, and it is paid for by TIMS founding members. Dana (the Buddhist word for giving) is accepted and collected at each meeting from those members who are inspired to contribute. All collected dana is sent quarterly to IMC as teacher dana for Gil and Andrea.
