Self Retreats

A self retreat is an opportunity for personal practice. It is available at the Retreat Center between scheduled courses, provided you have already participated in at least one of our retreats and are familiar with the IMS practice environment.

During a self retreat, you are expected to meditate in silence, observe the Five Precepts and maintain a continuity of practice. The IMS Resident Teacher is available for support throughout your stay.

Our self-retreat sliding scale fees for 2020 range from $79 – $250 per day. Your length of stay may not exceed the longest period of teacher-led course that you have participated in at the Retreat Center.

For self retreats of up to five days immediately before or after a course, you can simply include the dates when you register. For self retreats of longer than five days, please use this application form.
