BIN Leadership Sangha
We are an all-volunteer board donating our time to the Buddhist Insight Network to help connect insight meditators, teachers, sangha leaders, and retreat centers in an interactive web of shared ideas and inspiration. As the Insight Meditation community grows, so does wisdom, awareness, and compassion for the benefit of all beings. If you share that vision, perhaps you'd like to join us!
