Dimensions of Insight:

Why do we practice the dharma? In this silent vipassana retreat there is the invitation to directly experience some of the deep insights into impermanence, suffering and selflessness in ways that lead to liberation. We will begin by cultivating stability, well-being and confidence. There will be periods of sitting and walking meditation, instruction, dharma talks and practice discussion.

Adrianne Ross, a retired family physician, has been involved in meditation and healing since 1976. She has been practicing Buddhist meditation since 1984 and been teaching insight meditation since 1998. She teaches in Canada and the US and is involved in teaching and mentoring students in the Dedicated Practitioner and Advanced Practitioner Programs through Spirit Rock Meditation Center in California. 

Christina Feldman has been teaching insight meditation since 1976 internationally. She is co-founder of Gaia House, UK and a guiding teacher of Insight Meditation Society in Barre, Massachusetts.   Christina is the author of a number of books including her latest, Boundless Heart.
