Meeting format (During program sessions, you will be able to see and hear the teacher, as well as other program participants, and they will be able to see and hear you).
Saddhā, translated as faith, or confidence, is a quality that is important to develop in the beginning and throughout our practice. It is accessible in every moment, and a part of the path of liberation. In this retreat, beginning meditators will be introduced to the Foundations of Mindfulness while experienced practitioners will have an opportunity to settle into this ever-deepening map of practice. Jeanne will offer ways to notice and cultivate this motivating quality of saddhā, and to explore its liberative invitation.

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 or you may do so here: Donate Now: Teacher Dana.
