Cultivating Peace in Turbulent Times: A Daylong Mindfulness and Loving-kindness Retreat

We’re living in times when it’s easy to feel swept up in and overwhelmed by the deadlines, obligations, and divisions in our lives and in the wider society.

In this daylong retreat, we cultivate practices of mindfulness, self-compassion, loving-kindness, and equanimity, supported by poetry, stories, and periods of walking and movement, to help us find peace and balance. We can then go back to our lives renewed, refreshed, and revitalized to deepen and embody peace in our lives and in the world.

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.
