We taught our third retreat in Italy, a 2-week retreat, in March 2018. In London, we taught our first UK event, a daylong on March 17, 2018.
Our Europe events have drawn people from many countries in Europe and beyond. Our 1-week retreat in 2016 included 35 retreatants from 11 countries, including Italy, Austria, Canada, England, France, Germany, Indonesia, Israel, the Netherlands, Switzerland, and Sweden, and other European retreats have included people from Greece, Croatia, Spain, Norway and the USA.
This stunning drawing of Ven. Pa Auk Sayadaw–drawn by talented artist and President of the “Associazione Jhāna Retreat, Buddhismo Theravāda in Italia” Andrea Magoni–captures the Sayadaw beautifully.
