Theravada in Minneapolis

Postby cddesjar » Sun May 01, 2011 1:41 am

I have some quick questions. I am wondering if anyone practices Theravada in Minneapolis/St. Paul and where they go? I've found a few places of interest and would like to attend but it seems that it is largely for a Burmese community and it's unclear when they do meditation, talks, etc. from their website. Do you guys think I would be welcomed? Also do you think they would do their talks solely in Burmese? Does anyone have any recommendations for me? I've been studying Buddhism for a while and want to become more formal in my learning and learn more about mediation, especially Vispassana.

“No lists of things to be done. The day providential to itself. The hour. There is no later. This is later. All things of grace and beauty such that one holds them to one's heart have a common provenance in pain. Their birth in grief and ashes.”
- Cormac McCarthy, The Road

Learn this from the waters:
in mountain clefts and chasms,
loud gush the streamlets,
but great rivers flow silently.
