Liberation of Heart and Mind: Online Vipassana and Lovingkindness Retreat

Welcome!

We’re delighted to offer this weekend meditation retreat for both new and experienced meditators, taught by Michele McDonald, Jesse Maceo Vega-Frey, Pari Ruengvisesh and Darine Monroy, beginning on Thursday, June 3, at 9 am ET.

This intensive retreat is an opportunity to explore the Buddha’s teachings on liberation by touching into the wordless depths of our own heart, with an emphasis on lovingkindness, compassion, empathetic joy and equanimity.

This page includes the retreat schedule and Zoom information.  All recorded sessions can be found posted daily  under each session  in the schedule.  To view the recordings click on the link : Link to recorded session.

Teacher Support

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. Click here to learn more about teacher support. There will be an opportunity to offer a contribution to your teachers at the end of your program, or you may donate now.
