The IMCC Young Adults' Sangha (currently known as YAS) defined our mission in Sept 2023. See below. 

Prioritizing young and middle-aged practitioners by leaning into the voices and energy of an age group that is less visible in many Sanghas. We share in a Dharma-focused circular format with collaborative leadership and member-led practice. We strive to cultivate a diverse and inclusive community of practitioners.

We hope you will consider joining us to explore the Dharma's relevance in our lives. Beginners are welcome.

If you are interested in attending the YAS, please email for resources and more information!

In 2022 the YAS! compiled a list of their collective aspirations for their sangha:

  • To be a space that allows us not to know, not to plan, finding space to be with uncertainty
  • Coming as we are and feeling safe in being ourselves and feeling included
  • To be a space where our voices are welcome, where we feel heard and have space to listen
  • To be a space where we have a sense of collective presence and connection
  • To be a space where we feel safe in the container of confidentiality and the non-judgement/container of the community is strong and clear
  • Create connections between the YAS and the larger IMCC Sangha - intention to learn from our elders and also to share our wisdom and gifts
  • To be a space where we can confront and hold space for difficult experiences, emotions, conflicts, etc.
  • To be a space that can hold whatever is present
