Insight Meditation Circle of Cape Cod Guiding Council
The Guiding Council is an internal volunteer group made up of five Sangha members each of whom are elected to serve 2-3 year terms. Their primary function is working to organize, arrange and maintain the regular functioning, activities, events, and general communications and outreach of the IMC-CC Sangha community.
Guiding Council Mission Statement
The mission of the Guiding Council is to:
- support the spiritual practice and growth of all people interested in learning about the teachings of the Buddha on wisdom, compassion and mindfulness by organizing regular sangha meetings and, when possible, retreats.
- dedicate ourselves to the Buddha’s teachings that hatred never ceases by hatred, but by love alone, and remain steadfast in upholding non-harming and nonviolence as the pillars of compassionate action.
- while maintaining a foundation in the Early Buddhist Teachings, be willing to include wisdom from other Buddhist organizations, traditions and Sanghas.
- strive at all times to abide by the five lay precepts and administer the financial and practical affairs of the sangha with honesty, transparency and compassion.
