ITINERARY

Meditation in a Monastery - Half Day

Meals MEALS [ L ]

Today your tour will start at 09:00.

Take a closer look at the spiritual side of Myanmar. This morning, transfer to Mahasi meditation center, one of the best monasteries in Yangon for meditation training. Mahasi is renowned as an ‘Educational Spa’ and many pilgrims come here to learn, study and practice Vipassana meditation.  

First meet with the venerable monk who will discuss the importance of meditation in the life of the Burmese Buddhist people. A meditation teacher, also a monk, will be there to introduce the techniques and methods that have been used for centuries.

After an hour of instruction and discussion it is time to put the new knowledge to practice. Move into the meditation hall and slip away into a deep meditative state, relaxing in the quiet, peaceful setting of the Mahasi meditation center.

With a clear mind and deeper connection to traditional Buddhist culture, return to the hotel or continue exploring the spiritual side of Myanmar with a visit to Shwedagon Pagoda.
