SF Dharma Center Project: A group is forming to establish an urban Insight Meditation center in San Francisco! A place for classes, sitting groups, community activities, service work, and more. If you are interested in helping make this happen please sign up here! We want to buy a place, so need help with real estate, fundraising, organizing, graphic design etc. If you have a potential place also let us know!

This project is being done in collaboration with Howie Cohn, Eugene Cash and Pam Weiss, who all teach Insight Meditation in San Francisco.

The advisory board for this project includes: Carol Wilson (IMS), Narayan Helen Liebenson (CIMC), Joseph Goldstein (IMS), Sharon Salzberg (IMS), Jack Kornfield (Spirit Rock), Gil Fronsdal (IMC), Larry Yang (Insight Community of the Desert), Pascal Auclair (Voie Boréale/True North), Bonnie Duran (Seattle POCAS), Ayya Tathaaloka (Dhammadharini Vihara), Catherine McGee (Gaia House, UK)
