You Can Always Start Again

Set new intentions and start the new year taking in the good! This daylong is a wonderful opportunity to practice presence and stillness a little longer throughout the day. Practicing longer has proven to help change the brain and improve our ability to be less reactionary and more calm throughout the day. The benefits of this directly impacts how well we experience more peace and less stress into our daily life. Connection and practice with others offers such a wonderful experience to train the brain and keep us coming back!

This venue is accessible for those with mobility impairments.

IMCW retreats and workshops offer instruction in Buddhist meditation and talks on the awakening of our natural insight, love and wisdom. While the meditation practices derive from the Buddhist tradition, they are universal in orientation and address spiritual themes of concern to all contemplative traditions.

A workshop is not primarily silent (talking may be allowed during breaks and lunch) and may be focused on a special topic, such as applying meditation to relationships, emotional healing or physical well-being. Workshops may include a variety of formats, including different reflections and exercises and the sharing of experiences.

The base offering covers direct expenses for this event, including support for the teacher. Your payment at the two higher levels includes a tax-deductible donation to the Insight Meditation Community of Washington (IMCW).
