2021 IMCW Spring Retreat: Intimacy with Life

Vipassana, or Buddhist meditation, is a way of opening to life and seeing clearly the totality of one’s being and experience. The practice is based on cultivating a present-centered mindfulness, leading to an unfolding of our natural wisdom and compassion. The focus of this retreat is to enhance intimacy with ourselves and the world. In order to help participants discover a sense of stillness and deep listening, silence will be maintained throughout the retreat except during question/answer periods and practice group meetings with the teachers. In addition to sitting and walking meditation practice, there will be sessions of mindful movement led each day.
