I WILL BE AWAY from Shelburne Falls for all of JUNE. I will be back July 7th teaching my Tuesday evening and Sat morn. classes at Hartyoga.com, in the mean time Lindel and Abigail will be subbing. Thanks to them for that.
I will be attending a month-long silent meditation retreat with my teacher, the venerable Sayadaw U Pandita, a renowned Buddhist monk. He is the author of “In This Very Life,” a wonderful book, see link to Amazon for info.
He is quite elderly but lives up to his reputation as a tough, demanding teacher. He is one of the primary teachers of such Western pioneers as Joseph Goldstein, Sharon Salzberg (founders of the Insight Meditation Society, in Barre, MA.) and Jack Kornfield a founder of Spirit Rock Center, in CA.. As the availability to study with him his limited, he lives in Myanmar (Burma;) I must go whenever he is in this country. Be well. Kalavati
