Mahasi-style Vipassanā Retreat
Dr. Sean Pritchard holds a PhD in clinical psychology and currently has a private counselling practice in Vancouver. He spent a number of years as an ordained Buddhist monk (U Vansarakkhita) in the Burmese Theravada tradition, studying with Sayadaw U Janakabhivamsa, one of the chief disciples of the great Mahasi Sayadaw. During this period he was placed in charge of Dhammodaya Meditation Center in Thailand and traveled worldwide teaching Mahasi-style vipassana (mindfulness) and metta (loving-kindness) meditation practices to many different cultures and nationalities. His experience and teaching has provided him with a unique perspective on the Asian and Western understanding of mental health.
