Welcome to Insight Western Mass (IWM)
Formerly known as Insight PV
People who keep our sangha going by volunteering their time and energy leading affinity groups, hosting offerings on Zoom, acting as in-person greeters, doing administrative tasks, serving on committees, and more are among those who steward our sangha.
More information can be found on the Sangha Stewards/Volunteer Page. If you would like to speak with someone from the Board or staff about your ideas and have energy to lead, or want to learn more about existing volunteer opportunities, please contact: email@example.com.
Please join us in bringing practice into everyday life through sangha service.
