IMG started out when an American lawyer living in Taipei met Master Sheng Yen
in 1994 and asked him for a retreat for her and some of her friends. At that time she

In a world of great uncertainties and alienation, in a life full of challenges and difficulties,
we need an anchor, a compass, and a lighthouse to help us cross the choppy sea of life.

we can find true peace and wisdom, as well as the delight of life and the warmth in the world.

Come and join us in the meditation practice conducted regularly on Saturday morning.
