Anna Ossenfort was introduced to Vipassana meditation in 2007, when she took Rodney Smith's beginning class. She has been an active, contributing member of Seattle Insight Meditation Society ever since. She has completed two, three-month retreats, and from 2013 to 2015, she lived and worked at the Insight Meditation Society (IMS) in Barre, Massachusetts. During that time, she completed the Integrated Study and Practice Program at the Barre Center for Buddhist Studies (BCBS). She also had the opportunity to visit a prison and share the Dharma, an especially moving experience. She has sat dozens of retreats at Cloud Mountain, IMS's Retreat Center, IMS's Forest
Refuge and BCBS.
