IMCW Fall Retreat
with Jonathan Faust, Ruth King, Pat Coffey, Sebene Selassie
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 interviews with the teachers. In addition to sitting and walking meditation practice, there will be sessions of mindful movement led each day by Jonathan Foust.
This is a silent meditation retreat held in noble silence; it is not an interactive workshop.
