2022 IMCW Spring Retreat: Flexing the Five Strengths

This 7-night residential retreat will bring focus to the Five Strengths (also known as the Five Powers), and the ways in which these qualities bring balance to the practice. Faith and trust are balanced by the clarity of wisdom. Deep concentration brings the stillness that balances energy. And mindfulness is the fulcrum, a supporting and balancing quality for the other four.

Tara Brach, Frank Ostaseski
Our world is changing faster than we can compute or process. Accompanying these changes are a growing violence, deepening divides, great loss and much uncertainty and fear. In this week’s talk, I’m joined by Frank Ostaseski to explore teachings and practices that can support us in meeting our inner life and our world with kindness and awareness. Our time includes engagement with those present in a live event.

We awaken a present heart by relaxing with the breath, and bringing the kindness of a smile into our bodily experience. This meditation ends with offering blessings to our inner life and all beings.
