Bhavana Society of West Virginia
« on: October 05, 2015, 01:53:30 PM »
Hi.  I was wondering if anyone here has been to the Bhavana Society of West Virginia.  I came across their website yesterday and I'm intrigued; considering sitting a retreat there next year.  I've been sitting retreats at the Vipassana Meditation Center in Mass.  That's an 8-hour drive for me from central Pa., while it'd only be a 3-hour drive to Bhavana Society center. Of course, that's not my primary motivation, just that it'd be nice to not have to drive so far.  ;)
 The description of this monastery and the retreats intrigues me.  It sounds like it would be a good fit - silent, donation based, yet a bit different than a Goenka retreat, with interactions with monastics and with work periods.   
So, I was hoping someone here had attended a retreat there and could comment on what it was like.

Thanks!   :)
