LIBERATION OF HEART AND MIND: Online Retreat with IMS @ Online
Jun 3 – Jun 6 all-day

Join Michele McDonald, Jesse Maceo Vega-Frey, Pari Ruengvisesh, and Darine Monroy for this wonderful opportunity to practice with the Insight Meditation Society.

This intensive online retreat is an opportunity to explore the Buddha’s teachings on liberation by touching into the wordless depths of our own heart, with an emphasis on lovingkindness, compassion, empathetic joy and equanimity. By practicing with interest, acceptance and kindness, we develop greater understanding and compassion. In this way, we increase our ability to meet life’s changes with ease and serenity. With guidance and support from the teachers, both new and experienced meditators will be encouraged to deepen their trust in their own practice.
