What we're about
Thank you so much for your support of Sandy Springs Insight Meditation. As you may know, the co-organizers of the group (Dick, Cherry, Joel, Mark and Veletta) decided to switch to a Zoom-only format last year after our resumed meetings at the church were poorly attended.
Feeling the limits of Zoom and wanting to start attending in-person sangha meetings with other groups such as Dharma Jewel and Roswell Insight Meditation Community, Cherry and Joel have decided to step down as co-organizers of SSIM. Mark and Veletta have significant teaching and organizing responsibilities at RIMC, and it would be very difficult for Dick to run the weekly SSIM meetings without Cherry and Joel.
As a result, we have decided to end the group after nearly 14 years of offering sitting, dharma talks and discussions on Wednesday nights. Last night was our final meeting.
We have shared many meaningful experiences and made strong personal connections with so many of you over the years. We are deeply grateful for your friendship and your willingness to study and practice the precious dharma. We hope to stay connected with you and wish you all the best in life and on the path.
With much metta,
Cherry, Dick, Joel, Mark and Veletta
