pages 37 onwards here have a list of Burmese meditation centres for Vipassana and also Samatha. ... enters.pdf

Aflame with the fire of passion, the fire of aversion, the fire of delusion.
Aflame, with birth, aging & death, with sorrows, lamentations, pains, distresses, & despairs ......

Seeing thus, the disciple of the Noble One grows disenchanted. SN 35.28

If you are open to considering Burmese monasteries in Thailand, then there is Wat Tha Ma O in Lampang Province. The new abbot there, Sayadaw Gandhasāra, is a disciple of Mahasi Sayadaw who is fluent in English and teaches the samatha-vipassanā system outlined in Mahasi’s Brahmavihāra Dhamma, i.e., insight development based upon mettā jhāna.
