Retreat for December 2017
Answer

Hi all,

I am looking for retreat at the end of December and beginning of January. Anywhere from 1 week to 3 weeks.

I'm leaning towards doing another retreat with Shinzen but would like to see if people have other suggestions. I'm looking for teachers that don't bullshit you when you have A&P events. I've been on 8 retreats and only 3 of them had teachers that seemed competent or open to discussing and guiding. I usally get the advice of just give it space and don't attach.

So the places I DON'T want to go to
    Spirit Rock
    IMS

I really like Andrea Fella but unfortunately she's not teaching during that time. 

Are there teachers that you all would suggest?

I can recommend http://tathagata.org/

The center is located in San Jose, CA and they have a retreat coming up in December 2017 for the whole month (Dec 1 - Dec 30).

The teacher is U Thuzana Sayadaw, a burmese monk with deep meditation experience.

You may want to check that place out.
