Entering the Sacred: Monastic Retreat

Western nuns and monks from the Thai Buddhist monastic tradition offer an insight meditation retreat each year at IMS. The 2008 course will focus on "Entering the Sacred"- accessing an awareness that supports and balances the body, heart and mind. Retreatants are asked to observe the eight monastic precepts, which include abstaining from eating after noon each day, and to participate fully in the daily routine of sitting, standing and walking meditations. Group practice will begin every day with an offering of flowers, light (in the form of candles) and fragrance (incense), as well as chanting to the Triple Gem.
