We would like you to keep in touch with us. Feel free to communicate if you have any questions. Please use the Personnel Contact list for that.  

We hope the challenges arising from COVID-19 Pandemic crisis and the suspension of Common IBS teaching activities will bring out the core strength of our Zen practice.  Already, We, the IBS Task Teem, have been experiencing the re-mewed sense of purpose and energy since 18 March, the start of series of meetings and projects. We hope that every will stay safe and healthy going through this challenging time into the future.

Thank you for your support and feedback,

With Gassho,
