Special Note: Until further notice, all events at SIMS are either paused or will meet remotely via Zoom software. Current event status and meeting links are on the Online Events page.


The Monday evening ongoing class at SIMS starts with a meditation and is followed by a dharma talk. The evening is open to anyone who has had introductory meditation instruction from a qualified instructor. Dharma talks are often presented in series.

This year we will explore the topic of Dependent Origination, one of the most important teachings of the Buddha. Pratītyasamutpāda, commonly translated as dependent origination, or dependent arising, states that all dharmas arise in dependence upon other dharmas: "if this exists, that exists; if this ceases to exist, that also ceases to exist". It describes the factors that create an independant, isolated sense of self, tying us to suffering.

Each month, Tuere and Tim will explore one of the twelve links of Dependent Origination.
