Exploring the Buddhist teachings of mindfulness infused with lovingkindness, this weekend silent meditation retreat, open to all, will cultivate our connection to ourselves and to life itself through body-centered awareness. Developing down-to-earth intimacy with our life as it unfolds, we will increase our ability to open our hearts to this vibrant wild world we live in.
A great retreat for beginners, for experienced students who want to refresh their practice, or in combination with the seven day retreat that follows.
The course will be supported by insight and lovingkindness meditation instructions, gentle afternoon yoga, talks about the teachings and Q & A sessions with the teachers. There will also be the opportunity to practice walking meditation outdoors on IMS's beautiful grounds.
