Oh, and while I'm at it, if I went there for three months of retreat, does anyone know how easy it is to switch to another center afterward?
meditaton visas for Myanmar are of a 3 month duration with a sponsorship letter so if you wish to stay longer you will need an extension at a cost of $90 for one year.
monastaries usually arrange this for students wishing to extend their stay but since they are taking official responsibility for your location and behaviour i dont know if they would do this if you plan leaving aftr the initial 3 month period to go to another cenntre.
perhaps you can extend it yourself in Burma or you could go to thailand to do so
