The Book Of Ruth

We have lost our Dear Ruth, but her wise and witty words live on. Now available here for download, a pdf version of “The Book Of Ruth: Sayings of Ruth Denison” (19MB, may take a minute to open):

The Book Of Ruth: Sayings of Ruth Denison


Ruth Denison is one of RMI Founder Lucinda Green’s root teachers. For those who are unfamiliar with Ruth’s teaching, it is probably best understood as a combination of U Ba Khin’s vipassana meditation technique, her teacher Charlotte Selver’s sensory awareness techniques, Theraveda Buddhist doctrine, and Ruth’s own studies, discoveries and innovations. In addition, through the decades, Ruth has constantly refined her teaching, routinely emphasizing one aspect or another of the technique to suit what she understands to be a student’s needs in that moment, in that place.
