Second 3-Week Insight Meditation Retreat

These two 3-week retreats mark a special time for IMS – a return to onsite, in-person programming! In light of current conditions IMS has made the decision to offer two 3-week retreats back-to-back with a short break in between. It will be possible to attend either one separately, or both.

Because of the extended length and ongoing guidance, these retreats offer an opportunity for students to deepen the powers of concentration, wisdom and compassion. These silent retreats will encourage a balanced attitude of relaxation and alertness, and continuity of practice. Instruction will be based on the Buddha’s Four Establishments of Mindfulness and on the meditation instructions of Mahāsi Sayadaw, supplemented by a range of skillful means.
