I was just at this place last week, my 4th visit:
The monk who runs the meditation courses is American. He's one of a vanishing small number of foreign monks who've done both 50 day and 90 day instructors' retreats and spent 3 years in training to teach meditation in addition to the retreats.
There are also courses in Chiang Mai at Doi Sutep:
Thank you very much. Did you do the silent treatment there or just visited? Ill check it out. Thanks!
Salina, I twice did a temple stay which involved meditation tuition. I then did a silent retreat on a different occasion away form the temple, at the meditation retreat. Last week I did a meditation retreat which wasn't silent but the monk/teacher has told me next time I go he will make it silent if that's what I want (silent is more beneficial for me).
