Retreat Support Fellowship position

IMS's Retreat Support Fellowship program offers a unique opportunity, under the guidance of our respected meditation teachers, to support the physical and psychological welfare of yogis (course participants) during retreats. Two Fellows work together in conjunction with teachers and staff at both IMS facilities – the Retreat Center and the Forest Refuge – to ensure adequate year-round coverage of responsibilities.
One of these Fellowship positions is currently available. We are seeking mature candidates, well-established in Theravada Buddhist meditation practices and studies.
