Dhamma Everywhere - Welcoming each moment with Awareness+Wisdom
An Insight meditation retreat with Sayadaw U Tejaniya
Sayadaw U Tejaniya began practicing meditation in his early teenage years under the late Shwe OO Min Sayadaw(1912-2002) ,ordaining several times as a novice monk. He took robe in 1996 after life as a householder and business man. He is now the meditation teacher of the Shwe OO Min Dhamma Sukha Tawya meditation center in Yangon, Myanmar (Burma).
Sayadaw’s style of teaching is dynamic – an evolving process based on his own experiences and recognition of difficulties yogis face in their practice. With his easy sense of humor and relaxed demeanor, Sayadaw relates naturally to his lay students, helping them to appreciate the presence of dhamma everywhere with awareness + wisdom. Sayadaw travels extensively giving guidance to teachers and students at various centres throughout the world. This retreat is a rare opportunity to sit with one of the worlds foremost insight meditation teachers.

So this is for a different retreat - one in New Zealand?
Thought you were talking about the Australian one in Perth.
Dan74 wrote:Still it is interesting that the Australian retreat is less than half the price of the NZ. Maybe for the Australian one, they are getting the venue for free and in NZ they have to pay for the hire?
"Tailor your week to your own needs: adventurous, reflective or pampered. Choose optional activities to
enhance your experience ranging from guided nature walks, pampering massage and spa, yoga
and meditation, gourmet picnics, and local adventures on land and water."
