About Calgary IMS


Calgary Insight Meditation Society will cultivate opportunities for practise, learning and building community.


A compassionate world that meets each moment with kindness, mindfulness and generosity.


Rooted in early Buddhist teaching of interdependence, ethics, meditation, and wisdom we believe:

o   Everyone can develop their awareness, innate kindness, compassion and generosity.

o   Connecting with one another to share, practise, and learn supports spiritual  growth for the benefit of individuals, our community, and all beings.
