Insight Meditation South Bay (IMSB), is a Buddhist meditation center in Silicon Valley with programs in San Jose, Mountain View, Los Altos, Palo Alto, Saratoga, and Menlo Park. We encourage the development of direct insight through meditation, concentration, mindfulness, and daily life practices.

Our founding teacher, Shaila Catherine, and guest teachers offer a wide range of courses and retreats for beginning and advanced meditation practitioners.

The IMSB community (sangha) is a diverse group of people who practice to integrate the Buddha’s teachings on wisdom, virtue, and meditation into their daily lives. We are helping to develop a culture and community of practitioners who see freedom from suffering as a real possibility and who support each other on the path to liberation.
