An afternoon retreat devoted to cultivating a calm mind and a kind heart towards ourselves and others, connecting with loving awareness through meditation and movement.  

This retreat is especially geared toward those who are familiar with insight/Vipassana or mindfulness meditation practices, or have completed the MBSR course. 

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 $25 fee covers room rental. There will be an option to offer dana (a donation) to support the teachers at class.

Please send any questions about the retreat to Rebecca Hines (or click "Contact Us", below).
