On the other hand, if you are able to pay your own registration costs, or you are not able to attend this year, please consider donating to someone who needs the financial help to attend. We will send you links to contribute to others as soon as we have pages set up.

Kyaswa Monastery Foreign Yogis Retreat
Sagaing Hills, Burma (Myanmar)

Sayadaw U Pannabhinanda, Michele McDonald, and Steven Smith

This three-week meditation retreat will be held at Kyaswa Monastery in the Sagaing Hills of Upper Burma (Myanmar). The hills are filled with centuries-old pagodas, monasteries, and nunneries, and are one of the most important practice centers of Theravada Buddhism. This “fusion” retreat offers a rare opportunity to practice meditation using highly respected traditional Burmese monastic methods supported by a skilled Western teaching perspective. For more information on the retreat and our teachers, please visit here.   Click here to register.​
