Online Retreat Schedule

 

Insight Retreats are opportunities to engage in full-time mindfulness training. The daily schedule involves periods of sitting and walking meditation, instructions, dharma talks, work meditation, and practice discussion with teachers. Silence is maintained throughout most of the retreat.

Cost: Our retreats are offered freely at no cost to anyone who participates. Most of the financial support for IRC comes from donations participants offer at the end of retreats. Their generosity is what allows others to participate in future retreats.

Deposit: A refundable deposit is required to apply for a retreat. The deposit is not charged when you apply and would only be charged if you are admitted to a retreat then cancel after the cancellation deadline or fail to show up at the retreat.

Lottery: All applications that come in during the first 3 weeks of registration are entered into a lottery. Those not selected can be placed on the Waiting List.
