Barre, Massachusetts    

IMS is a spiritual refuge for all who seek freedom from the suffering of mind and heart. We offer meditation retreats rooted in the Theravada Buddhist teachings of ethics, concentration and wisdom. These practices help develop awareness and compassion, giving rise to greater peace and happiness in the world.

The Retreat Center started its program of silent meditation courses in 1976. It offers a full yearly schedule of over 25 meditation courses, ranging in duration from a weekend to three months. Most retreats run for 7-9 days.

All Retreat Center courses provide instruction and practice in insight (vipassana) and/or lovingkindness (metta) meditations.

At the Retreat Center, most courses are designed for both new and experienced meditators. Instruction in meditation and evening talks about the Buddha’s teachings are given daily. Individual or group interviews with the teachers take place at regular intervals.

Thailand    

Suan Pa Himawan Retreat Center, a sanctuary for meditators in the midst of rolling hills and mountainous scenery of Phu Ruea, Loei province, Thailand.
At the Retreat Center, you will find and learn one of the world’s simplest and most effective methods of meditation and live in a beautiful, comfortable environment. You will also receive personal guidance on meditation that best fits your unique character from experienced teaching monks.
We name our meditation retreat after an ancient concept in meditation, the Middle Way, which Lord Buddha referred to as the path that leads to enlightenment. In terms of meditation, it means taking the middle path or the center of the body to reach a desired destination or goal -- whether it is a serendipitous solution to a problem, a creative insight into life and living, or even freedom from emotional suffering.
The serenity and natural beauty of the surroundings make the retreat center an ideal place for meditation and conducive for listening to your inner voice that might have been silenced by hectic lifestyles, busy schedules and multiple responsibilities.
