Here are some of the teaching venues I’ll be at through 2019 and into 2020. I’ll fill in the contact details as I get them. This year I expect to be available at Cittaviveka in West Sussex, England most of the time between June and late November.
As venues and times shift or occasionally get cancelled, please contact the respective venue for details.
In order to save on travel, carbon emissions, and general wear and tear, I structure my engagements so that I stay in one area for a few months at a time. I also like to spend time in my home monastery supporting the community there. So after the May 2019 retreat, I won’t be back in the USA for a year or so. I’ll be in Europe for most of 2019 and 2020.
