Hello, I am wondering if anybody knows about/is connected to the Shwe Oo Min Center in Yangon, if they are open and accepting yogis etc. On their website it seems to say that Sayadaw U Tejaniya has returned to teaching, but I sent them a few email messages and have not had a reply.

I've heard that the city center is not a solid place to go and that one should go to the Forrest center

Aren’t both centers closed to foreigners during Sayadaw U Tejaniya recuperation from health problems?

I've been to Shwe Oo Min four times, though it appears to include "Forest" in it's title semi regularly it's definately not a forest centre. It's a collection of large dormitory buildings surrounded by villages and fields. It's a standard Burmese city centre but maybe with a more than usual cultivated gardens.

I haven't heard of there being a separate city centre, unless it's the old centre which i guess could still be operating, either way it's not where Sayaday U Tejaniya teaches.

Last time I went there I had trouble getting a reply to emails, in the end I had to make contact through the Sayadaw U Tejaniya International Group I think is on Facebook now they contacted the centre for me, so for the OP I recommend trying this.
