Exploring deeply the Buddhist teachings of mindfulness and lovingkindness, this silent meditation retreat, open to all, will cultivate our connection to ourselves and to life itself through body-centered awareness. Developing intimacy with our physical, energetic and emotional bodies, we will touch essential truths about life and gain the stability of heart that helps us move through this world with greater wisdom and compassion.
The course will be supported by daily insight and lovingkindness meditation instructions, talks about the teachings and meetings with the teachers. There will also be the opportunity to practice walking meditation outdoors in IMS's beautiful grounds, and optional afternoon yoga will be offered by assistant teacher Jessica Morey.
