    living with the eight precepts outside of retreat

    Greetings,

    I would like to communicate with yogis who are practicing the eight precepts while maintaining a householder life to discuss strategies and problems as well as any other aspects of this lifestyle. I am 77 and therefore ordination is not an option. I am spending every third month on retreat at the Tathagata Meditation Center in San Jose and have for the past 2+ years. TMC is a Mahasi Vipassana practice center with a Burmese monk/abbot and guest retreat leaders with similar credentials--always a fully ordained Theravada monk or a sayalay nun. Much metta

    Dear srkatona,

    Good to hear from you. I notice that you joined us seven years ago and this is your first post, so welcome!

    I think it's unlikely that you will find the people you are seeking at this website...but you never know!


    With metta and very best wishes for your practice,


    Aloka
