April 2014. Pian dei Ciliegi offers the precious chance for an intensive Vipassana meditation retreat according to the tradition of Mahasi Sayadaw. This year we have the privilege an honour of having with us Ven. Vivekananda, eminent scholar of the Dhamma, abbot of the Panditarama International Meditation Centre in Lumbini (Nepal), and disciple of Sayadaw U-Pandita. He will guide the first period of the retreat (April 7 – 16), and will be followed by two qualified lay Dhamma teachers:
Hannes Huber (April 16 – 24)
Beate Gloeckner (April 24 – May 4),
whom many of you have met and appreciated for their ability to integrate ancient Bhuddist teachings with the more modern approaches of western thinking.
