Patrick Kearney

Patrick Kearney is an independent dharma teacher in the lineage of Mahāsī Sayādaw.  Trained extensively in insight meditation (satipaṭṭhāna vipassanā) and Zen, he teaches workshops and retreats in Australia and overseas.

Patrick focuses on the original teachings of the Buddha, before Theravāda or Mahāyāna were conceived. He studies Pāli, the language of the earliest surviving Indian recension of the Buddha’s teachings, and seeks to bring his understanding of the early texts to the practice of dharma in the contemporary world.
