meditation retreat) in the (post-Buddhist) tradition of Alan’s training
in Burma with the Ven Mahasi Sayadaw and
his successor Ven Sayadaw U Pandita.

Alan, a former Buddhist monk, author, activist, performing artist, and retreat leader, is perhaps best known for his training in insight meditation and Buddhist psychology in Burma under the guidance of the father of the worldwide mass lay mindfulness movement, the late Ven Mahasi Sayadaw and his successor the late Ven Sayadaw U Pandita.
“A radical, passionate, eloquent former Buddhist monk – the first American ordained in Burma in modern times – Clements is a world dharma guide, long time yogi, performing artist, mystical activist and author, described by Jack Healy, former director of Amnesty international, as “one of the most important and compelling voices of our time.’” The Independent
“Alan’s life is material for a legend. An intellectual artist, freedom fighter, former Buddhist monk, he shares his insights and experience with a passion rarely seen and even more rarely lived. He’ll make you think and feel in ways that challenge your entire way of being.”Catherine Ingram, In the Footsteps of Gandhi and Passionate Presence
During the course of his career Alan has been interviewed on numerous televisionand radio programs, including ABC’s Nightline, CBS Evening News, CBC and SHAW TV in Canada, German National TV, ABC TV in Australia, Voice of America Radio, Radio Free Asia, the BBC, and in the New York Times, London Times, The Guardian, San Francisco Chronicle, Washington Post,
