This silent retreat, suitable for both beginning and experienced meditators, is an opportunity to unplug from the outer world of technology, social roles, to-do lists and problem solving, and tune in with awareness to our inner world of body, mind and heart. We will learn to cultivate a natural, embodied presence through both mindfulness and lovingkindness meditations. These practices help us to accept more fully the pleasure and pain, fear and joy, sadness and happiness that life inevitably brings, and we can develop greater ease in the face of change.

A Message from IMS’s Guiding Teachers

Inevitably, there'll be some noise as IMS’s project to renovate the Catskills is underway. (Its completion is currently scheduled for late August 2013.) The work, however, will take place primarily indoors during regular construction hours, usually Monday – Friday, 7:00am–4:00pm.

In the Retreat Center meditation hall, the impact of any renovation noise is further reduced by an air circulation and conditioning system that allows fresh air to move around without opening the windows.

The teachers at IMS decided to continue offering retreats throughout this building period, knowing that conditions for practice are rarely perfect. We trust that these particular conditions can be met with the equanimity and grace with which we meet a range of conditions in our lives

All of us at IMS look forward to supporting you on retreat.
