Ruth Denison is a vipassana dharma elder whose style of teaching is unique in the IMS schedule. Her body-focused teachings invite students to drop below the level of concept into the direct experience of life. In addition to sitting and walking meditation, Ruth spontaneously guides the moment-to-moment development of awareness in movement, chanting and playful celebration. While the retreat is held in noble silence, continuous meditation instruction will be given during her teaching periods.
Ruth will be joined in teaching by Arinna Weisman, and will be celebrating her 86th birthday during this time.
