Rebecca Bradshaw is the guiding teacher of the Insight Meditation Center of the Pioneer Valley (www.insightpv.org) in
Easthampton, Massachusetts, and one at the guiding teachers at the Insight
Meditation Society in Barre, Massachusetts. "My passion is encouraging
students to drop into embodied presence, and grounding this presence in
wisdom and lovingkindness. When a sense of love and kindness underlies our
practice, we can explore life deeply in a truly integrated way, bringing
together mind, heart, and body. Wisdom then holds it all in spaciousness. I
enjoy connecting with young people in the Dharma, teaching students on
longer retreats, supporting sangha on a community level, and sharing the
dharma in Spanish."
In my teaching I hope to convey my deep faith that freeing our hearts and minds is possible so we can live our lives from a place of wisdom, care and ease. What we need is honesty, perseverance and a good portion of humor.
