Registration is Now Open For
INSIGHT MEDITATION RETREATS
Offered by The Yellow Springs Dharma Center
May 13-15 OR May 15-22, 2022
at the Jesuit Spiritual Center in Milford, Ohio
With Rebecca Bradshaw, Insight Meditation Society
Assisted by: Candace Cassin and Robert Pryor
Compassion and Wisdom: Empowering the Heart and Mind
In our meditation practice, we seek to strengthen and balance the force of love with radical grounding in the truth of impermanence. In the joyful energy of springtime, we will attune to our inner landscape and let our own experience be the guide and the teacher for developing an open heart and mind that can survive and thrive in all conditions of life.
These silent retreats are suitable for beginners or experienced practitioners. The retreats will include daily instructions in insight and lovingkindness meditation, talks about the teachings, and meetings with the teachers. Walking meditation may be practiced outdoors on the beautiful grounds, and an optional period of mindful movement will be offered each afternoon.
Rebecca Bradshaw is a Guiding Teacher at Insight Meditation Society (IMS) in Barre, MA and the Guiding Teacher Emerita of the Insight Meditation Community of Western Massachusetts. She has taught the annual residential Vipassana retreat with the Yellow Springs Dharma Center since 2006.
The Jesuit Spiritual Center of Milford, Ohio is located northeast of Cincinnati. Vegetarian meals will be provided, and all rooms are single.
