Shared interest groups are one way to nurture practice and develop friendships within the larger SIMS community. These groups do not require facilitators and are usually more informal than KM groups. Each shared interest group depends on a contact person to handle information about meetings. If you have a hobby or activity that you would like to share with other SIMS attendees (for example, seeing movies, taking hikes, sewing quilts, or kayaking), please consider organizing a shared interest group. To find out if other meditators are interested in your topic, please contact the Shared Interest Groups Coordinator.
