Devin Berry has

by the classical teachings of early Buddhism and the Insight Meditation
tradition. He has undertaken many periods of silent long-term retreat
practice. Devin completed the Dedicated Practitioners Program at Spirit
Rock Meditation Center, where he is a visiting teacher. He is currently
in the 2017-2021 Insight Meditation Society Teacher Training Program. He

he co-founded the teen sangha and the Men of Color sangha. He has
recently relocated to Western Massachusetts and teaches nationally.
Devin is passionate about the power of witnessing and storytelling as a
liberation tool. He is deeply committed to the personal and collective
liberation of marginalized communities knowing that through the
integration of reflection and insight, clarity and wisdom give rise to
wise action. Devin's website is devinberry.org.
you have the means, please consider a donation tonight. We operate
entirely on the sangha's acts of generosity. Your donation will help us
meet the minimum payment for the teacher and provide some support to the
ongoing operations of the sangha as well. Everyone is welcome at all of
our events, regardless of ability to donate. Therefore, those who
donate more are helping to make the center accessible to all.
A note about dana for Wednesday night Dharma talks: Our
teachers receive 60% of the dana given for Wednesday night Dharma
talks, as they traditionally have. That said, since the pandemic, dana
given for Dharma talks has decreased. As a result, IWM now provides
teachers with a minimum guaranteed amount. If you wish to give
additional dana solely to the teacher for this Dharma talk, there will
be an opportunity later in the process below.
