Barry H. Gillespie

Barry Gillespie lived and taught in Ottawa for 26 years. He was a co-owner of Santosha Yoga from when it was founded in the 90’s until he moved to Boulder, Colorado in 2004. He was introduced to formal meditation practice in 1978, through the Sivananda Yoga Vedanta Ashram.

In 2003 he began exploring Theravada Buddhist practice, sitting many long retreats at the Insight Meditation Society in Barre, MA and Spirit Rock in Woodacre, CA. His principal teacher is Guy Armstrong. He is an affiliated teacher with the Insight Meditation Community of Colorado.

He teaches because he loves to share Buddha Dhamma with others. The more people there are living mindfully, the better the world will be.


“I love teaching at the Galilee Centre. It is quiet, peaceful, out in nature; perfect for a meditation retreat.”
