About Us

Dharma Town is intended as a sangha-building resource for practitioners of Insight, Mindfulness and Metta Meditation in the St. Louis area. In support of our practice both on and off the cushion, Dharma Town provides current information about study and sitting groups, social events and other related activities, plus reflections on all-things-dharma at our Town Blog, the “Dharma Town Times.”

Dharma Town “Mayor”:
Dharma Town is designed, written, and maintained as a labor of love by Jan Rosamond, who was first taught Insight Meditation by Mirabai Bush at a corporate retreat while working for Monsanto (of all places!) back in 1998. She has since sat more than 400 nights on retreat with many Insight/Vipassana teachers including Joseph Goldstein, Jack Kornfield, Sylvia Boorstein, Guy Armstrong, Sally Armstrong, Ajahn Sucitto, Bhikkhu Analayo, and Sayadaw U Tejaniya (in Burma). She has completed Spirit Rock’s Dedicated Practitioner (DPP4) and Community Dharma Leader (CDL5) programs. Her primary teacher is Phillip Moffitt.
