New England Family Dharma Retreat in the Berkshire Mountains July 8, 2019By Neile Whitney events, family We are pleased to announce that the IMCW Family Program teachers -- Ofosu, Jen, and Fred – will be leading a New England Family Dharma Retreat in the Berkshire mountains of Massachusetts, July 19-23, at the beautiful Eastover Estate & Eco-Village. Activities will include skits, games, songs, art, mindful movement, nature activities, a campfire, meditation, and dharma talks. During free time, optional activities include swimming, mindful sports, drumming, nature activities, Qi Gong, and parent workshops. The Insight Meditation Society held an annual Family Dharma Retreat for twenty years but chose to stop offering it around 2013. When the IMCW Family Program teachers learned it was coming to a close, they decided to fill the void and begin offering a family retreat. However, for many New England families, Virginia is too far to travel. Thus this second offering. Spread the word about this family retreat! More information can be found on the Eastover website. Please note: the New England retreat is being organized by former Insight Meditation Society (IMS) Family Retreatants and is not an IMCW-sponsored event.
