how does one go on retreat with U Pandita Jr.?

Toggle
Hello,

I've recently found enough time away from work to schedule a long retreat. One of the options I'm considering is going to U Pandita Jr., in Melbourne. Unfortunately, all the links to that seem to have rotten and are now pointing to parked sites, and Google isn't being much help.

Does someone have updated contact information?

Thanks in advance!

Just an update. U Pandita Jr is currently travelling internationally. He will be back at the Manohara Centre in early February 2017.

The phone and website is down right now, the only way to contact the centre is through their facebook page - https://www.facebook.com/manohara251/ .

Update, contact number (as by facebook): +94361425 ; there will be a retreat 1 April 2018.

Do I get that correctly that it is Mahasi Noting? Is it beginner friendly?

Yes, he teaches the Mahasi style meditation. If you want to learn it from him before April, he teaches it at the Buhddist Society of Victoria centre in Malvern East on Thursdays. Or at least he had been; I hope he resumes doing so after this most recent retreat.
