Online Living Dharma: Working with Fear

This retreat is held online.

IMS Online
This retreat is held online.
July 11 - July 12, 2020 (Saturday to Sunday)


When we are awake and attentive to the present moment, life reveals that it is continually changing and uncertain, and that people are vulnerable in so many ways. Faced with these challenges, it’s no wonder that we often react with fear, anxiety, and repetitive worrying.

By shining the light of awareness on these conditioned habits of mind, we can free up our potential to respond to difficulties with equanimity and compassion, rather than contract with aversion and suffering.

Drawing on methods grounded in mindfulness, investigation, and lovingkindness, this retreat will encourage and support the development of calm, and a wiser and more open-hearted attitude in working with fear.


Registration gives you access to the livestream event as well as 30 days’ access to each recorded session through our replay library.

Cost is sliding-scale: $195, $100, or $75, your choice. Paying at a higher rate helps IMS to offer ongoing support to teachers and staff during this period of closure. Scholarships are available. For more information, please email imsonline@dharma.org.

A note on 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.) There will be an opportunity to offer a contribution to your teacher at the end of this course.
