Impermanent Sangha has offered low cost wilderness and nature meditation retreats since 2002. These outdoor retreats are a combination of formal Insight/Mindfulness meditation practice, deep Sangha (community), and being in wild places where the Dharma comes alive.
Impermanent Sangha retreats are affordable (with scholarships available), and are oriented to appreciating the beauties and mysteries of outer and inner nature deeply and mindfully. There is preparation time at the beginning of each retreat focusing on low impact camping, physical safety, and group cohesion and bonding, and then we go into noble silence.
Some physical activity is inherent to outdoor retreats, but there is no intention to push and challenge, and reasonable health is all that's required. Past participants have ranged in age from 18 to 80, and we welcome diversity of all types.
The 2014 meditation retreat schedule included camping in the Collegiate Peaks Wilderness of Colorado, flat water canoeing on the Green River through Canyonlands in Utah, camping in Rocky Mountain National Park, and more.
