Omega Retreat – 2009

Bhante Wimala conducted his annual weekend meditation retreat on Oct 2nd-4th 2009 at the Rhinebeck Campus of Omega Institute in Rhinebeck, New York. The workshop was attended by 42 adults, primarily professionals, most of whom were beginning meditators. This year marks the 23rd consecutive year that Bhante has been teaching at the Omega Institute. As usual the workshop was very well received.

With his unique blend of traditional and modern training techniques, Bhante’s teaching style is particularly inspiring to the Western audience. This weekend brought a survey of meditation techniques to start the beginner and motivate the experienced meditator.

?I have practiced alongside many gifted and compassionate meditation instructors and spiritual guides during the past decade and I can easily state that Bhante Y. Wimala is, without a doubt in my mind, among the very best of the best.? -Alex Nason
