Leslie played Andrea Fella's talk, Developing Wisdom, part of a June 2019 IMC non-residential retreat, Awareness and Wisdom.
Sanghamitta and Ayya Ahimsa attended a one month retreat with Beth Upton. Beth trained as a nun at Pa Auk and learned a method, based on the Vissudhimagga, to help people more quickly let go into all the jhanas and then use vipassana exercises to gain the insights for Awakening. It was a very inspiring retreat.
