Updates on future retreats

The intensive Satipatthana Vipassana retreat led by Bhante Sujiva has just begun, and will end on September 3rd. Brother Dassana was unable to reach the Center from Malaysia this year, so Bhante Sujiva will guide the whole retreat. His assistants will respectively be Massimo Bonomelli, Luisa Lazzarotto and Piero Urban.
 
To offer further opportunities for practice, and to compensate for the forced closure of the center in spring and the cancellation of retreats due to the Covid emergency, we have added two autumn retreats to our calendar:
Gautam Verma will lead a Satipatthana Vipassana retreat from October 3rd to 11th, 2020 in English with Italian translation.
Federica La Rosa will lead a Satipatthana Vipassana retreat from October 30th to November 3rd, in Italian. You can sign up by following the procedure indicated on our website www.piandeiciliegi.it, where you will also find our updated program. To know the availability of places you can check the "book a retreat" section of the site.
 
Ven. Viranani will conduct an online guided Metta meditation session, from 8.30 to 10 am every fourth Saturday of the month.

At the requests of many meditators, who have experienced the great support that a shared practice can give, Pian dei Ciliegi center has decided to activate a virtual meditation room, open to all those who wish to practice together. The meditation sessions will take place every day, starting from September 14, 2020, from 6 to 7 in the morning (Italian time). It will not be guided and will use the zoom platform.

Finally, we’d like to inform you that a Pian dei Ciliegi association members’ meeting is scheduled for September 13th 2020 at 2 p.m. We expect it would be complicated for foreigners to attend, but if you need further information we’d be glad to give you the details.
