More than ever with the changing worldly conditions, we seek refuge, direction and inspiration from our dharma practice in order to meet our lives with a clear mind and wise heart.
In this five-day silent retreat, we will strengthen our practice through the cultivation of insight and compassion as they give rise to, support, and interweave with each other on and off the cushion. The schedule will include sitting and walking practice along with guided meditation, dharma talks and small group meetings with the teachers. Both experienced and beginning practitioners are welcome.
A limited number of Hemera Contemplative Fellowships are available.
Teacher Support: Most IMS teachers—like insight teachers around the world—offer their teachings freely, and rely on the generosity of students for their livelihood.
