Item Description


The successful bidder for this item will receive the coveted IMS Book Club's Co-Founders' Sampler from Insight Meditation Society in Barre, Maine.

In August 2020, the Insight Meditation Society launched its new IMS Book Club, and to mark the occasion it assembled a sampler of six books by IMS co-founders Sharon Salzberg and Joseph Goldstein. Included are Sharon's latest title, Real Change: Mindfulness to Heal Ourselves and the World, which delivers a profound message of healing and hope in these difficult times, and the new edition of Joseph's modern spiritual classic, The Experience of Insight: A Simple and Direct Guide to Buddhist Meditation. Released by Shambhala Publications in September 2020, this updated edition includes Ram Dass's original introduction, as well as a new preface reflecting on how the conversation around meditation has changed over the last forty years. In addition to four other insightful and inspiring books: Mindfulness: A Practical Guide to Awakening and  One Dharma:The Emerging Western Buddhism by Joseph and Real Change and Real Happiness at Work by Sharon. The sampler includes an IMS canvas tote book bag.

Set amidst 200 wooded acres in Barre, MA. IMS is one of the Western world's most respected centers for learning and deepening meditation practice. Since opening its doors in 1976, its experienced teachers, including Sharon Salzberg, Joseph Goldstein, Jack Kornfield, Christina Feldman and others, have offered guidance in Buddhist meditations known as vipassana (insight) and metta (lovingkindness). These practices help develop awareness and compassion in ourselves, giving rise to greater peace and happiness in the world.
