This retreat is specifically designed for professionals involved in mindfulness-based modalities. Educators, clinicians and researchers engaged, teaching or training in mindfulness-based approaches are welcome to attend.

The course is an invitation to extend and deepen personal experience of mindfulness meditation, in the company of peers and colleagues. The retreat will explore the Four Foundations of Mindfulness as taught in the Satipatthâna discourse given by the Buddha. This is a profound teaching that encourages us to place the path of freedom and compassion in the classroom of our lives, nurturing a heart that is receptive and unshakeable.

Each day will offer a sustained schedule of formal meditation practice (both insight and lovingkindness), meetings with the teachers, talks and guidance, all within an environment of silence. A familiarity with formal practice is assumed. An optional daily period of mindful yoga will be offered by Luis F. Sierra.

25 CE credits are available for Psychologists and Licensed Mental Health Counselors. An additional fee of $50 will be payable at the end of your retreat when you receive your certificate. IMS offers CE credits through the Institute for Meditation and Psychotherapy (IMP).
