Join us in this silent retreat as we explore and practice together the key teachings of the Buddha.
-- What is mindfulness?
-- The Four Noble Truths: a path to liberation
-- Working with hindrances to our meditation practice
-- The three characteristics of existence
-- At home in the Brahmaviharas – the heart practices of lovingkindness, compassion, sympathetic joy and equanimity
These core instructions form the foundation for meditators to build a practice that leads us toward wisdom, compassion, and skillful, embodied living.
The essential teachings of the Buddha help to open the heart, settle the mind, and loosen the inner grasping that leads to suffering. During IMS retreats, we are invited into these life-changing practices.
The teachings have been carried forward by countless beings, generation by generation, for 2600 years, and are revealed within our own unique experiences in this moment.
