For many years now, Sravasti Abbey has held a program during the summers entitled: “Exploring Monastic Life.” I have a friend that used to go there every year, and I always wondered what happened on this retreat. Recently, video recordings of their latest EML have been put on the internet, and I thought this might also interest other people.

Even if someone isn’t exploring monasticism, I think they’re a very good set of teachings in general. Specifically for myself and other lay practitioners, I found video 3 (“The Householder’s Life”) and video 14 (“Buddha’s Advice to Lay Practitioners”) to be very good.
