IMCC offered its first one-year Dhamma Study and Practice Program from September 2017 through August 2018. The program integrated meditation practice with the study of the teachings of the Buddha. The first class of students delved more deeply into the meaning and significance of the Buddha’s teachings and creatively explored the relationship of these teachings to meditation practice and daily life.
The program was led by Dharma Leaders Ward Simmons, Debbie George and Clyde Alexander (front row). The group met monthly, including four daylong sessions. The students also worked with partners on the recommended readings and reflections.
