Deborah Ratner Helzer

Deborah Ratner Helzer has been meditating since 1991, and has practiced and studied both western and asian traditions. She spent a year as a Theravadan nun in Burma, and her teaching style reflects the influence of the late Burmese master Mahasi Sayadaw and his emphasis on clear, non-judgmental awareness. Deborah has been mentored in her teaching by Joseph Goldstein and other senior Vipassana teachers connected with the Insight Meditation Society in Barre, MA. She has been teaching locally and assisting at retreats around the country since 2002.
