Announcement to Insight Santa Cruz Community

ISC Move to Galleria

From: Guiding Teacher Bob Stahl


Dear Insight Santa Cruz Community,

On behalf of the ISC board and teachers, I want to share some wonderful and important news with you. We are moving forward with renting a space at the Galleria, which is the same place we discussed renting last summer.  The owners have agreed to a better layout to meet our needs, and we are planning to move there in early August 2016. This move begins a new phase that comes naturally after a number of years at the Fair St. location. The new location and space will allow us to serve a larger community and to be more centrally located.

As you know, we have been looking for a new place since last summer, as our lease will be up in August 2016. Being located in downtown Santa Cruz, we will be more accessible to people in surrounding communities as well as be able to serve a more diverse population. Our new space will have a larger main meditation hall plus an additional classroom, so that two groups can meet simultaneously. This will support the further blossoming of ISC programs. There will also be a kitchen area, library, and an office.

We will be in regular contact with you since we need your help for this transition to come to its full potential. There will be many opportunities for you to engage in the process of creating our new center. We will also be planning a fundraising drive to help support tenant improvements.

We plan to make this transition part of our mindfulness practice and aspire to be as wise, kind, honest, and as skillful as possible. We will be transparent, include you in seeing the plans, and keep you up-to-date with developments. We will also be putting a lot of thought and effort in supporting everyone moving to our new Insight Santa Cruz Center with no one left behind!  If you would like to contact us, please send an email to email hidden; JavaScript is required
