The greatest gift is the
gift of the teachings
Retreat Dharma Talks at Insight Meditation Society - Retreat Center

Labor Day Weekend

Ruth Denison is a vipassana dharma elder whose style of teaching is unique in the IMS schedule. Her body-focused teachings invite students to drop below the level of concept into the direct experience of life. In addition to sitting and walking meditation, Ruth spontaneously guides the moment-to-moment development of awareness in movement, chanting and playful celebration. While the retreat is held in noble silence, continuous meditation instruction will be given during her teaching periods.

Ruth will be joined in teaching by Julie Wester, a longtime student of Ruth’s and member of the Spirit Rock Teachers Council. Ruth will be celebrating her 85th birthday during this time.
