Venerable Virañani  

Ven. Virañani is a Buddhist nun, born in the USA (Hawaï) now living in Myanmar.
Deeply rooted in Dhamma by practice, study and teaching. She practiced in the Birmese tradition (Mahasi Sayadaw), in the Thai forest tradition and she has been teaching at the Insight Meditation Society in the USA.
There are two retreats back to back, the whole period is from april 17 to april 30, 2018.

The Metta retreat from april 17 – 23 is the first one.
Love without Barriers: An Introduction to Loving-kindness Meditation
The beautiful spirit of mettā (loving-kindness) is without limit and without barriers. In this retreat Ven. Virañani will offer a simple and direct method to develop and strengthen the heart’s natural capacity to connect with others in kindness. We will explore this spirit of mettā together both in formal practice and in the many ways that the practice can be strengthened in everyday life. This retreat is suitable for both beginners and experienced meditators.

The second retreat is a Vipassana retreat from april 24 -30.
Ven. Virañani is able to help yogi’s make the connection between Metta and Vipassana. This makes it all the more usefull to do both retreats. If that is what you want you will have to register for both retreats.
