Item Description


The successful bidder for this item will have the choice of participating in, or gifting, one of the 2014 weekend retreats, of two or three days' duration, offered by the Insight Meditation Society (IMS).

Set amidst 200 wooded acres in Barre, MA. IMS is one of the Western world’s most respected centers for learning and deepening meditation practice. Since opening its doors in 1976, its experienced teachers—including Sharon Salzberg, Joseph Goldstein, Jack Kornfield, Christina Feldman and others—have offered guidance in Buddhist meditations known as vipassana (insight) and metta (lovingkindness). These practices help develop awareness and compassion in ourselves, giving rise to greater peace and happiness in the world.

A meditation retreat at IMS's Retreat Center is an opportunity for spiritual refuge and transformation. It is an invitation to explore the possibility of freedom from suffering, amidst quiet and seclusion. Our weekend retreats are designed for both new and experienced meditators - all are welcome. While the context is the Buddha’s teachings, the practices are universal.

Visit the IMS website to learn about all the rich practice opportunities this important meditation center offers. Select any 2- or 3-day retreat from our 2014 schedule of Retreat Center courses.
