The Buddha's teachings offer a pathway to discover inner peace, freedom and the compassionate heart. Through deepening our understanding of the nature of things, we can come to know what it means to awaken in the midst of our life, to be deeply connected to our experience, and yet not bound by it.
This silent retreat will focus on cultivating a quality of conscious presence that embraces our heart, mind and body with acceptance and wisdom. Insight meditation practice will be supported by instructions, loving-kindness meditation and regular meetings with the teachers. All are welcome.
Still available: Space for Service Retreatant, available for any yogi who has previous service retreat experience at the IMS Retreat Center (and meets the retreat prerequisites). Please see our Service Retreat page for more information.
A limited number of Hemera Contemplative Fellowships are available. You are welcome to apply even if you are already confirmed or waitlisted for this retreat.
