The Dharma of Belonging: An Insight Meditation Retreat for Experienced Practitioners

Welcome!

We’re excited to offer this online retreat for students who have completed at least two previous residential meditation retreats of five days or longer. Jaya Rudgard and Susie Harrington will offer their teachings, beginning Sunday, January 10, at 10 am EST.

This intensive retreat will include dharma talks, guided and unguided meditation, Q&A, inquiry exercises in dyads and other small groups, and mindful movement (qigong). There will also be small group and individual practice meetings with the teachers.

This page includes the retreat schedule and Zoom information. If you haven’t done so already, please register for this retreat here. If you have questions, please email us at imsonline@dharma.org.

Retreat Dana (generosity)

Most IMS teachers—like insight teachers around the world—rely on the generosity of students for their livelihood, and receive no compensation from course fees. All IMS online teachers receive a modest dana advance from IMS to guarantee a minimum level of financial support. (Click here to learn more about the dana practice.)
