Public Talk by Rebecca
April 8, 2010 ▪ 8pm ▪ Yellow Springs Dharma Center
Vipassana Meditation has been practiced in Asia for 2,500 years. This
technique helps one to develop a calm and compassionate approach to life through
the development of concentration and awareness. As mindfulness deepens, wholehearted
presence is cultivated, giving us the opportunity to discover for ourselves what leads to
happiness and peace. This two- or five-day retreat, held in silence with alternating periods
of sitting and walking meditation, will include daily guided vipassana and lovingkindness
practice, evening talks, and opportunities to meet with the teacher. The retreat is appropriate
for both new and experienced meditators. Although based in Buddhist teachings, the
retreat is non-sectarian and complements any spiritual or religious practice.
Rebecca Bradshaw teaches at the Insight Meditation Society in Barre,
MA, at other locations in the United States, and at Kyaswa Monastery in
Sagaing, Myanmar. She is a psychotherapist, the guiding teacher of the
Insight Meditation Center of Pioneer Valley, MA, and the Buddhist Advisor
at Mt Holyoke College. Her teaching explores the convergence of love and
Grailville is located in the rolling hills of southwest Ohio. Grailville’s 300 acres
include walking trails, woods, pastures, ponds, creeks, and labyrinths and provides a
powerful setting for spiritual practice. Vegetarian meals will be provided.
