Legendary 91-year-old vipassana meditation teacher Ruth Denison, pictured here in front of a painting of her teacher Sayagi U Ba Khin (1988-1971) of Burma, lives here in Joshua Tree near us. Jay has been her student for the last two years.

Ruth has retired from formal teaching duties but occasionally meets with vipassana students and those interested in the practice. Dhamma Dena Desert Vipassana Center, founded by Ruth, holds retreats and daily sittings in Joshua Tree.
