Suggested donation: $60-110 registration + teacher donation*
Come join the Insight PV Community in our annual non-residential retreat together. In this time of continued stress and isolation of the pandemic, we will consciously connect with the beauty and stillness of winter individually and in virtual community. In this retreat, we will dedicate ourselves to an immersion of mindfulness, wisdom, and lovingkindness practices.
While we can’t be cozied up next to the comfort of the wood stove at Amherst Co-Housing, we can be ‘warmed up’ and infused by the loving container of the sangha that we create together. Jean and Devin are committed to making this 'user-friendly' as we engage in sitting and walking meditation, listening to the Dharma and sharing reflections together within the whole group as well as in small group gatherings with the teachers.
We very much look forward to spending this precious time with you on this winter retreat. Please know that are welcome regardless of whether or not you have previously attended IPV programs or are new to meditation.
We ask that you pre-register by 1/22 so that we can prepare accordingly.
*In keeping with the Buddhist tradition of dana (generosity), the suggested registration amounts for our classes and retreats (other than Wednesday night dharma talks) do not include any payment for the teacher. The teachers are paid entirely out of the students' generosity. Please consider giving a donation to the teacher in order to support their ability to continue to share the dharma. You may give a donation at the time of registration and give later donations through our teacher dana link. Everyone is welcome to all of our events regardless of ability to donate.
You can give online or send checks to InsightPV, 116 Pleasant Street, Suite 242, Easthampton, MA 01027.
