Mindfulness and metta (lovingkindness) are gateways to liberation. During this silent meditation retreat, we will practice together to quiet the mind, open the heart and see our human life with the eyes of wisdom.

A Message from IMS’s Guiding Teachers
Work on expanding and improving IMS’s Retreat Center dining room has begun and will continue through late summer.
Inevitably, this will result in construction and machinery noise. However, this will not be sustained and will mostly take place outdoors during regular construction hours, usually Monday – Friday, 7:00am–4:00pm. Toward the end of the project, there will be some indoor work, but this will be planned for between courses.
To help minimize the impact of the noise, windows in our Retreat Center meditation hall will be kept closed. (The air circulation and conditioning system there allows fresh air to move around very well, without opening windows.)
We have decided to continue offering retreats throughout this building period, knowing that conditions for practice are rarely perfect. We trust that this construction endeavor 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.
