Here are some of the teaching venues I’ll be at through the rest of 2018 and into 2019. (The summer dates refer to 2019). I’ll fill in the contact details as I get them. This year I expect to be available at Cittaviveka in West Sussex, England between early April and late June; I’ll be at Temple Monastery, New Hampshire for the Vassa (late July-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.
