Rebecca Bradshaw, a Guiding Teacher of the Insight Meditation Society in Barre MA, has been teaching Vipassana meditation since 1993. At IMS she is part of the three-month retreat teacher team, leads retreats for young adults, and serves as a member of the diversity committee. She has a master’s degree in Counseling Psychology and is a Licensed Mental Health Counselor (LMHC). Rebecca has been teaching the annual residential Vipassana retreat with the Yellow Springs Dharma Center since 2006.

Due to Covid, this year the residential Vipassana retreat was replaced with a virtual zoom retreat led by Rebecca. In addition, she graciously offered to present this online Dharma talk in the manner of her well-attended talks given at the Dharma Center on the evenings before our retreats begin.

We are happy to tell you that in May 2022, Rebecca Bradshaw will again lead a residential Vipassana Retreat in Southern Ohio, organized by the Yellow Springs Dharma Center.  Further information will be available on this web page in the fall of 2021.
