Participants are required to have sat at least two retreats with Christina Feldman at IMS – please document this when registering. After almost 40 years of teaching at the Retreat Center, Christina will be retiring from her US commitments in early 2020. This is the last time she'll be offering this particular course. We honor her dedication to the Dharma!
This insight meditation retreat will explore the Four Foundations of Mindfulness, as taught in the Satipaṭṭhāna discourse given by the Buddha. It is a profound teaching that encourages us to place the path of freedom and compassion into the classroom of our lives, nurturing a heart that is receptive and unshakeable.
Each day will offer a sustained schedule of formal meditation with practice in both insight and metta (boundless friendliness), meetings with the teachers, talks and instructions, all within an environment of silence.
An optional daily period of mindful yoga will be offered by Luis F. Sierra.
