Insight Meditation Retreats

A meditation retreat is a wonderful opportunity to deepen and ground your practice is a beautiful, peaceful setting surrounded by fellow meditators. Our next weekend meditation retreat is being planned for 2017 at De Sales Retreat Center in Brooklyn, Michigan.

We will be in the beautiful Lawrence Lodge. Retreats are suitable for beginning as well and continuing meditation students. Vegetarian options for all meals.

DONATION BASIS: In the Insight tradition, the teachings are offered freely, because it is understood that their value is priceless.

At the same time, support is needed for those teachings to continue. There are costs for building rental, food, and other supplies. The teachers may also have costs that need reimbursement. IMA2 has decided to see if we can continue this tradition, this economy of gifts, rather than fees. In this way, we all have the opportunity to practice generosity and gratitude as we are called and able.

Accommodations: Mostly semi-private rooms with sinks, limited private rooms available on a first come, first serve basis.. Please expect to share a room unless you have medical reason for a single.
