In addition to ensuring the smooth operations of retreats, our staff members share responsibility for the integrity of the spiritual refuge that IMS offers.
Our Staff Sangha Program supports the investigation of the teachings, the development of individual practices and the deepening of a spirit of service. It is designed to help staff bring greater mindfulness and kindness into social interactions and to grow in wisdom and compassion.
Resident Teachers implement this program and guide employees year-round in the integration of meditation practice with daily life and work. They highlight the perspective that all life situations, whether individual or interpersonal, are opportunities for awareness.
