About The Teacher

Jill Shepherd leads Insight Dialogue courses and non-residential workshops internationally. She began studying and practising insight meditation in Thailand in 1999, and recently spent seven years on staff at the Insight Meditation Society (IMS) in Barre, Massachusetts, where she participated in several long retreats and Buddhist study programs, as well as offering weekly meditation classes at a nearby men’s prison. Jill is a graduate of the IMS/Spirit Rock teacher training program in the US, under the guidance of Joseph Goldstein and Gil Fronsdal, and has been practising Insight Dialogue since 2007.

Currently, Jill divides her time mostly between the US, Australia and New Zealand, teaching vipassana, Insight Dialogue and brahmavihara practices in a variety of different forms, all grounded in the development of wisdom and compassion as the path to freedom.

Retreat Guru's Vision

We believe human beings are innately wise, strong and kind. This wisdom, although not always experienced, is always present. Going on retreat is a beautiful way to reconnect to our basic sanity and health. Our aspiration at Retreat Guru is to inspire people to experience authentic retreats and reconnect with their innate wisdom, strength and kindness.
