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 25 to May 9, 2019.

Being Friendly With What Is: Vipassana Meditation
Loving-kindness and insight meditation have different purposes but are immensely supportive of each other: When insight meditation is based on a foundation of kindness and interest, the we are able to most deeply understand ourselves, each other, and the deepest truths of the way things are.  In this week Ven. Virañani will share the wisdom practices from the Burmese Mahasi Tradition in a way that is grounded in and supported by the open-heartedness of metta (loving-kindness).This retreat is suitable for both beginners and experienced meditators
