This retreat is held online.
May 01 - May 05, 2021 (Saturday to Wednesday)


Both Webinar and Meeting Format(Some program sessions allow you to see and hear only the teacher, while other program sessions will allow you to see and hear the teacher as well as other program participants).

A wellspring of joy arises when we realize the scope of the Buddha's teachings and their impact on our relationships and activities. This retreat is an invitation to explore the core teaching of mindfulness and how it supports the cultivation of wisdom and compassion. These two qualities are awakened and strengthened quite naturally in the process of engaging the practice, allowing us to interact with our world with more ease of mind and understanding.

Prerequisites:
Participants are required to have completed at least two previous residential meditation retreats of seven days or longer.

Fees:
For this course, sliding scale fees are $200, $325, or $500. We also offer a scholarship fee of $100, and no-fee enrollment for those who request a fee-waiver. Our “Pay What You Can Afford" system supports the cultivation of a dynamic and inclusive community and contributes to the health and vibrancy of the sangha. Email imsonline@dharma.org for more information or to request a scholarship or no-fee enrollment.

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 teachers at the end of this course.
