A number of IMCW teachers have made themselves available for individual or small group practice meetings. Practice meetings are intended to guide students in their formal practice of Buddhist mindfulness and heart meditations. More experienced students may wish to discuss with a teacher what practices and dharma activities might most support their spiritual development.

Practice meetings are available to anyone who has a somewhat regular practice, has received introduction to meditation instruction (through class or CD) and attends one of our weekly classes. Teachers may offer meetings by phone or in person, or with some teachers, through Skype. They can be done individually or in small groups.

There are a number of IMCW teachers currently available for practice meetings. Please contact them directly to arrange a time and format.


There is no set fee, but a donation (dana) of $30 is suggested.  A typical meeting will about about 30 minutes in length.
