check local time

Through practicing mindfulness and meditation we can access our inherent stillness and expansiveness that allow us to hold the dynamic complexities of this precious human experience. Sitting together, we are able to support each other's practice and the personal intentions that inspire us to bring this inner peace  into our awareness so that we can access it in our everyday lives. 

Each week, the teacher will offer a topic for discussion, meditation guidance, and the opportunities to sit together in stillness and talk in break out groups.

He has trained with Burmese meditation masters, western monastics of the Thai Forest tradition and senior western vipassana teachers. He has spent over two years in silent, intensive retreat. Chas has served as IMS’s Resident Teacher at IMS since 2003. Chas is a graduate of the four year joint Insight Meditation Society / Spirit Rock Teacher Training Program. He teaches retreats at IMS and at various centers and sanghas throughout the country.
