We’re delighted to offer this weekend meditation retreat for the BIPOC community, taught by JoAnna Hardy, Devin Berry and Yong Oh, beginning on Thursday, June 17, at 4 pm ET. Movement will be offered by Sabra Saperstein.
This retreat provides an in-depth experience of the Buddha’s teachings on mindful awareness, as well as the cultivation of lovingkindness meditation, illuminating a path toward healing and greater happiness. Those without previous meditation experience are encouraged to participate.
Most IMS teachers—like insight teachers around the world—offer their teachings freely, and rely on the generosity of students for their livelihood. Teachers do not generally receive compensation from IMS program fees, though IMS may offer a modest advance to ensure financial support and the continuation of the teachings.
