Popular and inspiring meditation teacher Ajahn Jeff Oliver will be back in Bangkok briefly at the end of this month. Recently he went on retreat with a Burmese master he had not previously studied with, and so he will be charing some of these new experiences – particularly relating to mindfulness of mind (Citta).
Event is kindly hosted by the beautiful Bangkok Boutique Hotel Ariyasom Villa.
2pm We will start at Ariyasom Villa at 2 pm for those who have time off in the aternoon and would like to engage in sitting and walking meditation, aswell as having chance to talk more closely with Jeff about meditation.
6:30pm Gather at 6:30pm in the Library for coffee and refreshments.
7 – 8:30 pm Dhamma Talk and meditation
All free of charge as usual.
Jeff has given a number of talks for us over the last year, and his easy layman’s language has proved very accessible to all. Previously he practised both in Robes and as a layman under the tutelige of revered Burmese master U Janaka in the Mahasi Sayadaw lineage. Currently he is teaching meditation at various locations around the globe – wherever people invite him. Most recently he has been returning often to the meditation groups in Turkey, as well as Malaysia and Singapore.
In the next few months he will be returning to Australia, so it will be the last chance for a while to catch up with him in Bangkok.
