JustThis wrote:I did my first meditation retreat at IMS in Massachusetts in the late 70's. Since then I have done somewhere around 20 ten day retreats, all at IMS. My last three were 10 day self retreats at the Forest Refuge (IMS). I don't have a local group or teacher, I get most of my dharma information from books, this is the first Buddhist website I have joined. Since I don't have access to a teacher I am just winging it. My practice varies considerably from at least once a day to sometimes 3-4 sits a day depending on how busy I am. Due to financial considerations I haven't been on a retreat in over 2 years.
Hello JustThis, It is wonderful that you have gone to retreats at IMS. I listen to some of the dharma talks on Dharmaseed, many recorded at IMS. I hope you will be able to go to a retreat soon. Welcome
