7-Day Retreat with Ayya Medhanandi
August 20 @ 3:00 pm - August 27 @ 12:00 pm
SIMT is holding a 7-Day Residential Retreat with Ayya Medhanandi at the Chapin Mill Retreat Center, Batavia, N.Y., from August 20 to 27, 2022.
The retreat will include meditation instruction, private interviews, Dharma talks and group chanting. This retreat provides us with a wonderful opportunity to practice in this ancient tradition that has transmitted this priceless teaching of liberation to us through two and a half millennia.
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).
