Insight Meditation Society constructs new dormitory
Insight Meditation Society in Barre, Massachusetts, broke ground for a new dormitory at its Retreat Center facility last September. The highly energy-efficient new building is part of a larger construction project that includes renovation of the current “Catskills’\” dormitory, a covered walkway connecting all accommodations buildings, and extensive work on the Retreat Center entrance to make it fully accessible for those with mobility issues. When the work is completed in late summer, all retreatants at both IMS centers will be housed in single rooms. In the meantime, retreats are continuing to run without interruption throughout the year.
