Staycation – A Journey within Yourself
This summer, gift yourself with a staycation and experience the power of pause and reflection. A time to sit, stay, and relax into your true nature. This daylong journey will include mindful movement, guided and silent meditation, journaling, deep relaxation techniques, discussion, and sharing.
Chairs, sitting cushions, blankets, and other props will be provided. We suggest that whenever possible you wear or bring comfortable, loose fitting clothing.
You have no need to travel anywhere. Journey within yourself, enter a mine of rubies and bathe in the splendor of your own light.
There is ample parking, and the White Flint metro stop (red line) is a 10-minute walk (~1/2 mile). This venue is not wheelchair accessible.
All are welcome. No previous experience is required.
Please note: This is a semi-private offering and space is limited to 8 participants.
Retreat manager: Linda Naini

IMCW Retreats and Workshops
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.
Our daylongs open for registration 12 weeks in advance.
Fees: Base $75, Mid $85, Sponsor $95
