 New IMA2 Sangha directorycomic

Emily T. has kindly volunteered to organize a paper directory of people at Insight Meditation Ann Arbor. This is NOT the same thing as this Email mailing list, but rather will result in a paper directory for use when IMA2 members want to contact someone else in the sangha.

If you’d like to be included in this, please email: Directory list

and include the following:
Home Address
Preferred Phone (Home/Cell)

She will create a document which can be printed. You’ll be contacted with details about this in month or so.
