The Heart of Wisdom: Monastic Retreat

Each year, the ordained sangha from the Forest tradition offers a monastic retreat at IMS. Nuns will lead the 2009 course, focusing on the Buddha’s Four Foundations of Mindfulness as a path to awakening. The retreat will support the opening of the heart, the experience of emptiness and the deepening of wisdom and compassion.
