Optional DMP online retreat: March 13-16; 9:00 am-4:00 each day

The DMP is an eight-month program giving experienced practitioners the opportunity to delve into meditation practice and the Buddhist teachings and instructions for meditation. The program will utilize Anapanasati (mindfulness of breathing) as the reference for delving into practices and states of meditation related to the deepening of mindfulness, concentration, and insight.  We will also consider the supports and challenges to meditation, and the experiences and insights emphasized in traditional Vipassana practice. Components of the program include monthly group meetings, readings, and short reflective writing assignments.  An additional optional component is a three-day online retreat

As this is an immersion program, having a regular meditation practice is required.  Additional prerequisites are five years of committed insight meditation practice, 4 seven-day (or longer) silent insight meditation retreats, and completion of the IMC Eightfold Path Program or its equivalent.
