I think you already are on right path by taking up goenkaji's retreat, just please carry on with it.
Hang around - read the forums-
There's plenty to do without having to 'link-up' with a single teacher: there's no guarantee of 'results' even if you do.
sitting/talking with a meditation 'master' is not going to help.
oh hi, no not thinking of Goenka- I would give the same advice for the approach to any teacher, myself included.
If we we become blinkered and closed off to advice from other teachers (this man is clearly asking advice on the matter, after attending Goenka, s/he seems to want more) we are going to be in trouble.. Do you suggest only sticking to GoenkaG?
Ekayano maggo- means 'one right path' if I am not mistaken. Do you take that to mean that the Goenka method is the only one right path?
In my reaching the Noble Eightfold Path has been expounded. So in this Teaching only, the Four Noble persons can be found. All the other teachings, being void of Ariyas. are futile
While I have come across a person who did reach stream entry using the Goenka method
