We are excited to host this retreat with a top Meditation Teacher, Venerable Nicholas Thannissaro. Venerable Nicholas conducts meditation research for Oxford College, and has a show called Meditation For All, he truly is a gift of inspiration on the importance of daily practice of meditation and the cultivation of the mind. More than anything, Venerable Nicholas is truly knowledgeable and has so much wisdom, everyone who attends will surely be inspired and will learn why meditation is so important to our lives. It is something we should aim to do every day! We are flying him in from Manchester, London to conduct this retreat.

The Georgia Meditation Center will be hosting a 2 Day Meditation Retreat on March 1st and 2nd, with Venerable Nicholas Thannissaro. This retreat introduces meditation skills and their application in working constructively with negative emotions including anger, obsession, delusion, stinginess, arrogance, dissatisfaction and blindness to virtue.

Venerable Nicholas Thanissaro MA, BSc., PGCE is a Buddhist monk of UK origin. He has been a monk for fifteen years and has over twenty years of meditation experience. He has been giving popular mediation courses in Europe since 1997 and has several TV guest spots, audio CD's, books, book translations and academic articles to his name.

Please feel free to pass this onto anyone who is on a path to spiritual development and mindful awareness. This is sure to be a profound experience for us all! We are very excited to have Venerable Nicholas Thannissaro conduct a retreat at our center.
