Retreat Support Program

IMS's Retreat Support Program is a unique opportunity to work under the guidance of our respected dharma teachers and support the physical and emotional well-being of retreatants during intensive meditation practice. Each Retreat Support team member serves at both IMS retreat facilities – the Retreat Center and the Forest Refuge – working in conjunction with meditation teachers and staff. Two team members work closely together and coordinate with each other to ensure adequate year-round coverage of responsibilities. 

We have one opening to start December 1, 2014, and one to start July 2015. We are seeking mature candidates, well established in Theravada Buddhist meditation practices and studies.

Please note that IMS can only consider applications from those already authorized to work in the US.
