Both Join Sharon for the IMS Book Club this September! Each month, the IMS Book Club brings together authors and readers for a facilitated discussion on the featured dharma-book-of-the-month. Our book club offers participants a deeper experience and engagement with early Buddhist teachings and practice through the lens of the selected book.

In this beautifully written work, one of America’s most beloved meditation teachers offers discerning wisdom on understanding faith as a healing quality. Through the teachings of Buddha and insight gained from her lifelong spiritual quest, Sharon Salzberg provides us with a road map for cultivating a feeling of peace that can be practiced by anyone of any tradition.

We tend to think of faith as a commodity you either have or you don’t. But in many of the world’s wisdom traditions, faith isn’t something you possess; it’s something you do. Sharon shares her unique understanding of faith, distinguishing it from belief and dogma, to help you cultivate this profound force in your life. The book club will meet three times with each meeting focused on one of the three levels of faith: bright faith, verified faith, and unshakable faith.

  • The IMS Book Club is entirely free of charge.
  • All Book Club meetings will be held online  via Union and Zoom.
  • Each monthly Book Club event will feature a new book and one to three group discussions, including at least one session with the author.
  • If the author/teacher does not participate in all the sessions, an insight teacher from IMS will moderate those discussions in place of the author.
  • Beyond these basic guidelines, authors will be able to tailor their book club meetings as they see fit, so the structure of book club gatherings may vary from month to month.
