Meditation Retreat on US East Coast

Postby bga » Tue Jan 28, 2014 1:04 am

I am looking for a good meditation center or monastery on the East Coast of the United States where I can go on retreat (formal or informal) for about a week. Though the Bhavana Society is closest to my location, it has been ruled out due to the fact that I am not experienced enough to go on an Intermediate level retreat. Any suggestions would be welcome. Thank you!

With metta.

“Peace is within oneself to be found in the same place as agitation and suffering. It is not found in a forest or on a hilltop, nor is it given by a teacher. Where you experience suffering, you can also find freedom from suffering. Trying to run away from suffering is actually to run toward it.” ― Ajahn Chah
