Community Groups

Dharma Friends

Dharma Friends encourages spiritually-based friendships and a sense of community in our sangha. All sangha members are welcome to our events and may bring friends. We organize various activities such as hikes, music-jams, poetry readings, back-packing trips, and movie nights.

Vegetarian Potlucks

There is a potluck brunch at 11:00 am on the last Sunday of each month, following the regular Sunday morning program. Everyone is welcome to this informal gathering of sangha friends. Contact Di or Dave Tatro (650) 595-4260.

Temple Cleaning/Gardening

First and third Sundays of the month, 11:00 to 11:15 am. As part of integrating practice in daily life, we encourage sangha members to participate in our semi-monthly temple cleaning. Spend 15 minutes mindfully keeping our Center clean inside and out.


All the work that keeps IMC running smoothly is done by volunteers. Volunteering is an opportunity to participate and to meet other sangha members. Please see our volunteer page for information.

Sangha Yellow Pages

If you have a service or product you would like to promote to others in the sangha, you may create a listing for either the online or the physical binder version of our Sangha Yellow Pages. To be included, pick up an instruction form found inside the Sangha Yellow Pages Binder on the IMC literature table. For the Sangha Yellow Pages Online, leave your completed form in the designated pocket in the front of the binder. For the Sangha Yellow Pages Binder, create a one-page piece describing your business and insert it in the appropriate section of the binder. If you have questions, contact Wendy Alger.
