Teacher Training Program Funding – We’ve Met Our Goal!

We are happy to announce that in August we reached our fundraising goal for IMS’s four-year Teacher Training Program! This is much sooner than anticipated. The IMS community’s commitment to supporting the training of new teachers and increasing the diversity or our faculty is inspiring.

We’ve posted a short video on our website: “A New Dharma Wave” features core faculty and several of the trainees talking about the program and their experience to date.
