INSIGHT MEDITATION RETREAT
May 1-3 and May 3-9, 2020
Two retreats, back-to-back!
Jesuit Spiritual Center, Milford, Ohio
With Rebecca Bradshaw, Insight Meditation Society
Weekend: “Vipassana retreat: The ancient lineage of mindfulness”
Six-Day: “Living in harmony with truth: Buddhist perspectives on change, stress, and not-self”
In order to accommodate as many applicants as possible, we are offering two separate retreats in 2020. While it will be possible to register for both retreats, preference will be given to “weekend only” applicants before opening weekend registration to those attending the six day retreat.
In these silent meditation retreats, open to both beginning and experienced meditators, we will explore Buddhist teachings dedicated to mindfulness meditation practice. Bringing in mindful movement and loving kindness meditation, we will ground our practice in compassionate presence.
Rebecca Bradshaw is a Guiding Teacher at Insight Meditation Society in Barre, MA. She has been teaching meditation since 1993, and is a Licensed Mental Health Counselor. She has been leading the annual residential Vipassana retreat with the Yellow Springs Dharma Center since 2006.
The retreats will be held at the Jesuit Spiritual Center of Milford, Ohio located north of Cincinnati on beautiful grounds next to the Little Miami River. All participants will have a single room, and vegetarian meals will be provided.
Both the six day and the weekend retreats are appropriate for those new to residential retreat as well as those more experienced.
All are welcome to attend either retreat.
Registration Deadline: April 24, 2020
(or until all spaces are reserved)
In 2019 the Yellow Springs Dharma Center retreats with Rebecca were fully booked well in advance. Therefore, early registration is recommended.

Both the weekend and the six day retreats will be appropriate for those new to residential retreat as well as those more experienced. All are welcome to attend either retreat. Those wishing to attend both retreats may do so; however, preference will be given to accommodating weekend retreatants before opening up weekend registration to the six-day group.
