Claire Holden Rothman discovered Insight Meditation in 2004. Since then, she has enjoyed over 200 days of silent retreat in Canada, the U.S., and Asia, including the 3-month retreat at the Insight Meditation Society in Massachusetts and, most recently, a one-month monastic retreat in Lumbini, Nepal. Her core teachers in Montreal are Pascal Auclair and Daryl Lynn Ross of Voie boréale/True North Insight, under whom she completed a two-year teaching mentorship. Prior to that, she studied at the Barre Center for Buddhist Studies in Massachusetts with Andrew Olendzki (ISPP 2014). At the Insight Meditation Society in Barre, MA, she also worked with acclaimed teachers like Joseph Goldstein, Carol Wilson, and Ajahn Sucitto. Clarity is the hallmark of Claire’s own teaching, mixed with lots of humour and heart.
