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.
