Retreat with Ayya Medhanandi (Non-residential)

November 24, 2017 - November 26, 2017

In partnership with Theravada Buddhist Community

Registration closed: this retreat is now full.

This retreat will include meditation instruction, group chants, and devotional practice. It will be a wonderful opportunity to practise in this ancient tradition that has transmitted this priceless teaching of liberation to us through two and a half millennia.

Ajahn Viradhammo
Ayya Medhanandi is the founder and abbess of Sati Saraniya Hermitage near Perth, Ontario. A native of Montreal, she was ordained as a ten-precept Buddhist nun in Myanmar in 1988, has lived and practised in monasteries in England, North America, New Zealand and Asia and has many years of teaching experience. After 19 years as a nun, she received bhikkhuni ordination in Taiwan and returned to Canada to establish Sati Saraniya Hermitage, the first Canadian Theravada Buddhist monastic residence for bhikkhunis (fully-ordained women).
