Please support our teachers and our center. More than ever, we see how deeply interrelated we are. Supporting our sangha and our teachers through the practice of dana is an act of wisdom, compassion, and love. Thank you.

Can we help?


Taught by ICD Teachers Beth Mulligan and Ian Challis
June 30, 2020 – Jul 5, 2020

During this time of so much fear, change, and uncertainty we need each other and opportunities to practice Mindfulness and Equanimity the most. How to do this without gathering? We are offering this unique opportunity to engage in a silent retreat, from the comfort of your own home.

ICD teachers Beth Mulligan and Ian Challis will be holding the retreat virtually, and guiding you through the retreat just as they would in person. You can stay healthy, safe and sleep in your own bed, while having full days of mindfulness meditation practice, walking meditation, mindful movement, talks, and teachings. There will be opportunities to meet in small groups during the retreat.

This retreat is open to individuals who would like to further develop and deepen their mindfulness meditation practice in a supportive, immersive experience.
