A Day of Renewal: Connecting with Our Deepest Aspirations
Join us for a day of immersion in practices of awareness and compassion to renew connection with yourself, nature, and life:
- Benefit from pausing in the midst of daily life to simply be present;
- Connect with your internal resources for healing and well-being;
- Connect with your deepest intentions for yourself and your life;
- Practice in community with fellow mindfulness practitioners.
The day will consist of guided meditations including sitting, body scan, walking and loving-kindness meditations, gentle movement, and time for connecting.
This venue is accessible for those with mobility impairments.

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.
