About Jill Shepherd

Jill Shepherd leads Insight Dialogue courses and non-residential workshops internationally. She began studying and practicing 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 practicing 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.
