as the Subject Line

Integral Sangha of Monterey Bay is an intentional community of people seeking to serve the evolution of consciousness in themselves and each other.


We are people interested in the study and application of Integral Philosophy and Evolutionary Principals in our personal lives and in the world around us.


We are especially interested in the contemplative dimension of spirituality, as it brings with it the power of presence and stillness.


We are also especially interested in facilitating the intersubjective experience of We Space, as it brings an entrance to sacred relationship and conscious love.


ISMB provides a field for meeting and connecting with people inspired by personal growth and collective transformation.

   -- Through classes, seminars, and retreats, we explore and learn together.

   -- Through Authentic Relating Games Nights, we have fun, feel alive, and deepen our inter- and intra-personal connection.

   -- Through practice groups, we support each other and expand our perspectives.


Members of ISMB are people who are committed in their own life to an Integral Life Practice, with the intention of balancing the needs of body, mind, shadow and spirit.


We are also committed to building healthy community and sacred relationship in the service of evolution of consciousness.

"There's almost a sensual longing for communion with others who

have a large vision. The immense fulfillment of the friendship

between those engaged in furthering the evolution of consciousness

has a quality impossible to describe."
