Special Event Announcement!
November 17 & 18
Join Ondy Willson — an experienced practitioner and international teacher of mindfulness and Buddhist psychology, but also Mum, Nanna and Maverick — to find out how we can gain insights into life’s eternally discombobulating questions. And not necessarily by changing our belief systems or trying to be something we’re not! With warmth and wit, she talks no-nonsense, ego-busting self-discipline. Then, taking us by the hand, she gently guides us every step of the way, showing us how to use mindfulness to make titanic shifts of thought and action that can change our lives. To inspire us that transformation is possible, even for the most stubborn of minds, Ondy shares candid examples from her own life and asks us to, please, join her in a SPIRITUAL REBELLION!
Please join us Sundays from 3-5 as Geshe Thinley begins discussion of Shantideva's Guide Chapter 9. The IBC teaching room will be open to view this on Zoom and for live chanting prayers before and after the teaching.
Join us in October for an on-going intensive Meditation class on the first Saturday of each month with Buzz Fletcher. As this class focuses on the requisites and practice of Shamatha, or Calm Abiding meditation, practitioners are encouraged to sign-up for this class, wear attire comfortable enough for meditation, and bring lunch.
Please sign up for Shamatha Class here.
Join us online or in-person Sunday, Monday classes or
Wednesday Chanting and Prayers.
Please see the calendar listing for in person class tickets.

The Bodhicitta Prayer
May the supreme jewel bodhicitta
that has not arisen arise and grow,
and may that which has arisen not diminish,
but increase more and more.
Do not commit any non-virtuous actions,
Perform only perfect, virtuous actions,
Subdue your mind thoroughly -
This is the teaching of the Buddha
