A 10-day Vipassana (Insight Meditation)Retreat) in Bodh Gaya, India, with Radha Nicholson from 10-20 March 2023

I wish to encourage you to consider a visit to India in March 2023 and join the renowned 10-day Vipassana retreat in the Royal Thai Monastery in Bodh Gaya, Bihar with Radha Nicholson, a much-loved senior Dharma teacher, based in Australia.

Radha started teaching in India in 2003 in Sarnath, and in Bodh Gaya in 2007. I heard from Radha last week that 30 people have so far signed up to attend the retreat her. Good news. Following Covid, travellers, spiritual seekers and India wallahs find their way back to India.

Bodh Gaya is the location of the Buddha’s enlightenment. The Tree of Enlightenment is five minutes’ walk from the monastery.

She will renew her teaching programme after a two-year gap due to the global pandemic

More and more Westerners make plans to go to India in the months ahead. Some make their first visit to India. Others take the opportunity to develop a spiritual way of life, return for inner renewal and take opportunity to explore mindfulness/meditation in the company of like-minded practitioners. Do consider making the journey.

Beloved Thai Abbot, Venerable Veerayautho, has invited Radha to teach again in his monastery from 10-20 March 2023.

Radha and I have been friends since the mid-1970s and taught together in different parts of the world, including India. She follows in the Footsteps of the Buddha pointing to the truth of the liberating Deathless Dharma.


It is essential to book. For bookings and information please contact the retreat manager, Tim Dawson by email: insightbodhgaya@proton.me   See poster below for further information.

There is a modest registration of A$50.00 to help cover initial costs and an invitation to offer a donation (dana) at the end of the retreat.

The retreat format will be a classical silent Vipassana (Insight Meditation) retreat with periods of meditation in the four postures. There will be instructions, a Dharma talk and inquiry session daily.

Beginners and experienced meditators are welcome.

Teachings contribute to waking us up in these critical times.

Do join Radha.
