Sunday and Thursday Evenings


Our Sunday and Thursday night Dharma Gathering & Reflection is AIMC’s most popular offerings. After a short period of announcements, there is a 40-minute sitting meditation, followed by a dharma reflection offered by one of our Spiritual Friends Facilitator or a guest speaker. A dharma reflection is a talk given by a teacher or senior student describing the Buddha’s teachings.

These programs are offered on the basis of Dana, a practice of mutual generosity that has been alive since the time of the Buddha.

There is no fee for participating in these programs. We invite our practitioners to offer a donation in the baskets outside the meditation hall or online on our website.

The practice of Dana (generosity) lies at the heart of Buddhism.

Generosity strengthens relationship and reciprocity, reflecting a deep understanding of interconnectedness and freedom from craving. We welcome donations at events and here on our website.
