CIMC’s Sangha Life Committee is a Board Committee with representatives from each of CIMC’s Affinity Groups, Members-at-Large and the Board of Directors. Our mission is to attend to matters that sustain and care for all members of CIMC’s Sangha and support the flourishing of a diverse and inclusive dharma center. We engage in this work on behalf of the entire community.
Our vision is to create more spaces and avenues for relationship-building and communication across the different identity groups and individuals that gather at CIMC. We aspire to create opportunities for sangha members to listen and relate to one another, and through this emergent process, realize the mutual and interconnected nature of our personal and collective liberation. In addition, as our community comes to a greater understanding of its shared concerns (particularly ones that have been left on the margins), members can become active participants with teachers, staff, and leadership in guiding the growth and development of the Center.
