Check below for schedule and teachers.
The Black, Indigenous, and People of Color (BIPOC) Sangha is a weekly gathering of self-identified BIPOC practitioners who meditate together and explore the teachings of the Buddha in the light of personal experience.
Sessions include a short Dharma talk, guided meditation, and/or a silent sit for 30-40 minutes. Some gatherings add a 10-15 minute question and response period to support your practice.
Once you enroll, you will have access to all future sangha meetings. Note that the Zoom link is changed each week so please log into yourIMS Online Learning Center account to access the latest link. To support online privacy and security, IMS will no longer email Zoom links in 2022. Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any issues accessing the sangha; we are here to support you.
A note on dana (generosity practice)
BIPOC Sangha is a free offering from IMS. Teachers receive a modest fee for leading sangha sessions but if you would like to support this program or your teachers, you may make an offering within the IMS Online Learning Center after you enroll.
