Suzuki Roshi was asked, “Why do you practice?”  He laughed and said, “To enjoy my old age.”  Please join us as we create a dharma-based community of IMC seniors of all ages.  Everyone is welcome. We will cultivate enjoying our journey through the vicissitudes and blessings of aging with kindness and wisdom practices.  There will be guided meditations, talks, and discussions on topics that support aging with ease and contentment.
